Sound alike words, also known as homophones, cause confusion. Here at VocabularySpellingCity.com, we want you to learn the correct spelling and meaning behind all of the sound alike words. VocabularySpellingCity provides you with "confusing words" vocabulary lists for you to practice with.

We all have made those mistakes when, for instance, your friend had a hoarse throat and you sent an email that said, "Tommy has a horse throat." Did you really mean that your friend has a throat like a horse? Of course not!

Practice makes perfect and with VocabularySpellingCity.com, practicing the correct use of homophones is fun and easy!
