I've never heard that term. Can you use it in a sentence?


a trick or stratagem intended to ensnare or deceive; also : a beguiling or playful trick

Her fainting spell was just another one of her wiles used to garner sympathy from others.

"Don't expect your womanly wiles to work on me," he stated when her lower lip began to tremble at his rebuke.


I assumed it was a sexual term!

And to the extent that these wiles refer to the antics of a Coquette . . . . you are correct !

Usually the types of women who resort to "wiles" to get what they want are very sexual indeed....and would certainly include sex (or the promise of) in their package of "wiles."

I see that. My wife wanted a dish washer and a garbage disposal, so I gave her a daughter and a son.

I'll..a contraction of I will
Aisle..a row or space for walking with rows of seats on either side or with rows of seats.
Isle..land surounded by water

When I go to the movies in the Isle of Wight, I'll be certain not to trip down the aisle.

Here's another pair of words that is used interchangably - though they are not homonyms - just mis-used words . . . . from right here on this FORUM:

Mute - unable to speak, or unwilling to speak; refusing to enter a plea when arraigned before a Magistrate; a letter which is not pronounced; or a musical device used to muffle, or soften the tone of an instrument. Also, in art, to subdue the brightness or intensity of a color.

Moot - a subject of little or no consequence; discussed AFTER all meaningful decisions have already been made; strictly hypothetical . . . . like a Moot Court used for argument only.

Makes us look silly when the wrong one is used . . . . and we didn't even know it.

These phonetic equivalents wouldn't be here if I hadn't recently seen them mis-used:

Hall - a Noun: a large room for functions; or one that connects two or more other chambers. Shorty McGee was recently inducted into the BPO Hall of Fame for completing the most BPOs in a single day. Remember him; as Shorty is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records !

Haul - a Verb: to transport, carry or drag, particularly for a Fee; or to change course, especially that of a Sailing Ship at Sea. Also as a Noun: the act of hauling or the subject of that effort, such as your catch of fish from a single pull of the net. When you first contemplate entering the field of Real Estate, do so only if you can stay for the Long Haul. It is an industry built on deferred gratification.

A recent Forum Post reminded me of an inquiry I had this past week:

"Does my Home Equity Loan have a Do on Sale Clause ?"

I thought we covered Do, Due and Dew earlier; but not really.

Dew - A Noun: morning condensation on cool surfaces;

Do - A Verb: to perform or carry out;

Due - An adjective: payable, or suitable and proper.

These are only one syllable; but people sure "do" mess them up.

I still like the phonetically correct question:

"How many daze until the Buyer's 2nd Deposit is dew? A two-fer!

Because this FORUM is relied on as a site for novices to seek information from experts. It grieves me when people switch the two words:

People here often advise (verb) others who are seeking their advice (noun).

It just must be that season; the season for violating Homonyms:

Who's - A contraction of "who is" such as in "Who's going to buy me dinner ?" or "Who's who in Real Estate ?" or Who's going to fix that BPO ?"

Whose - A Pronoun meaning belonging to whom, like in "Whose life is it anyhow ?" or "Whose responsibility is that ?"

Did we mention ROLL and ROLE?

ROLL is an attendance list, or something you do to a ball, or something you eat with dinner.

ROLE is a part you play...a character, etc. Therefore, when you pretend you are someone else you are involved in "role play."

NOT "roll play."
