Thanks Perky. It was fun putting it together. I owe it to the kids at dinner for the idea of the words, except for tudor which was my addition. Tooter took another meaning, which I cleaned up for the forum.

I went ahead and blogged it too.

It added to the fun of Vermont's thread a little.

I don't think "beer" and "bear" are pronounced the same, even here in the deep south! "Witch" and "which" are not either.

If someone really needs a comprehensive list, here's Alan Cooper's list of 706 sets of homonyms that I posted three years ago when starting this thread:

Alan Cooper's List of Homonyms

Still the most complete list out there . . . . even though I've found a few omissions.

Thank you; but I'm pretty much reconciled to the fact that it's a losing cause.

Soon we'll all be communicating with just a series of miscellaneous grunts, interspersed with the frequent insertion of fillers, or place holders, such as "you know", "okay", "like", "I mean", "uummm", "well", and "kind'a"; all of which seem to already consume more syllables than the actual message.

I used to think it's you and me against the world; but now . . . . I don't know if you can even count on me.

I recently sat in on a lecture by a local Natural Resources Attorney, whose One Hour "prepared" speech contained 247 "you knows". Almost as good as Caroline Kennedy!

Thanks again for the cartoon !

I got an email from an asset manager last week asking if I thought they should "except" an offer. Luckily I knew they meant "accept"

I used to get assignment letters from a certain asset manager who closed her correspondence with the word, "Respectively," It always gave me a chuckle. I pointed out to her one time that she probably meant, "Respectfully,"

She never changed it.

but you can't make him float on his back.

(She probably changed the closing for everyone except you, just to be a contrarian).

When I read my email from my atty, I cringe. When I've read some of his pleadings, I don't know what to say. It's not only grammar and spelling, it's the ability to communicate a position.

It's true, we're getting to the point where people are barely bearly barley able to communicate their thoughts. Gets really bad when attys can't write and you think about all the Bills being written in Washington.
