Since you bring it up neudot, pair itself is often a problem child:

pair- a set of two;

pare- cutting down or removing the skin;

pear- bottom-heavy fruit.

I'm going to pare a pair of pears before I eat them !

HOMONYMS - why they're all around us ! It's scary; but I don't want to be gettin' some kind of PHOBIA about it. Here in Vermont, that would be very bad for business !

NOW I CAN’T RESIST TELLING MY NEW HOMONYM FRIENDS ABOUT HOWARD DEAN using Cite, Site and Sight.

When he was our Governor, Howard saw a new Comfort Inn being built on a SITE at Exit 20 of Interstate-91, and he then decided he didn’t want to see anything Commercial along the Interstate. He thought this damaged the bucolic or rustic character of Vermont and its Tourist Industry.

So before he left Office, Howard Dean had a Law passed that we must Cite informing Prospective Developers that they cannot commercially develop any Site that happens to be within Sight of any Interstate CloverLeaf, or Exit Ramp in Vermont. Just a little reduction in the value of the Commercial Development Rights by Edict ! How would that go over in your Jurisdiction ? This is just a little Real Estate related homonym exercise on Cite, Site, and Sight.

Absolutely no political comment is intended.

Of course not! I never thought such a thing! wink

Nice homonymisms! (if that's not a real word, it should be...)

Anyone ever get into Sniglets? I love Sniglets. I make up my own all the time.

And then we have the lone loan company that would even consider the purchaser for qualification.

I thought maybe Jenifer would remind us of her book about soul (not to be cofused with sole).

They just keep on coming !

Yesterday someone in MLS told us about a fanciful Mini-Farm which even had a Chicken Coupe'. (Like in BMW, instead of that plain kind of Coop for Poultry)

Then, the same day, a New Salesperson emails me a question on before"How many Daze until the Buyer's Deposit is Dew ?" A two-fer Sentence. (There's more to say about Do, Due and Dew.)

I am even more convinced that these otherwise Intelligent People were allowed to skip 3rd Grade; and NEVER LEARNED what they missed, and no one has had guts enough to tell them.

I know they all don't use a Dictaphone™ ? (Am I dating myself ?)

Here's another one from just the past 24 hours . . . . from right here on this FORUM:

Dual - two things; twofold; double; (like a Dual Exhaust System, or Dual Processors)

Duel - a formal fight over honor (often with Swords, or Pistols, or SlingShots)

"As a Dual Agent, I had a Mental Duel going on in my head between my competing Fiduciary Responsibilities . . . . Now I'm Bi-Polar." I'll never do that again !

They keep on coming ! Just this Morning:

"I am aloud to say this because of my past experience in . . . . whatever."

Allowed - permitted

Aloud - spoken

This is the United States of America; so I am allowed to say whatever I want; but it is best that I do not speak many of my thoughts aloud and keep them to myself.

Also related to the practice of Real Estate is the following pair, which I just saw mis-used this morning in: "I am going to council my Sellers to ....." It should be "counsel".

Counsel - As a noun, an Advisor or Consultant, like an Attorney or an Accountant; or as a Verb, to provide advice of a confidential and/or professional nature.

Council - A Noun describing a group of Leaders, like the Council of Nicea or the President's Council of Economic Advisors.

From a Private Message, I understand that my link to Alan Cooper's list of 706 Homonym Sets involving 1529 separate Words is not working. The followng link should work better:
