#EngGame: homophones

Today we’re gonna have #EngGame about homophones! The rule is simple: write down the homophone of the word in brackets to fill in the gaps.

Here’s an example:

  • “We can’t live without a _ _.” (heir)
  • The answer is: ‘air’. Because ‘heir’ and ‘air’ are homophones. Easy, right? :-)

Let’s start the #EngGame!

  1. “W _ _ _ _ are you going?” (wear)
  2. “Please w _ _ _ _ down the answers in the answer sheet.” (right)
  3. “Life is no fairy t _ _ _.” (tail)
  4. “I like p _ _ _ when it’s sweet. Do you like it too?” (pair)
  5. “You finally w _ _! Congratulations!” (one)
  6. “I can’t drink p _ _ _ _ milk. It tastes awful.” (plane)
  7. “A h _ _ _ is an animal that looks like rabbit.” (hair)
  8. “Do you really have to d _ _ your hair blue? You’re not a rock star, you know…” (die)
  9. “The traffic in this road is crazy in the morning. We might need to take another r _ _ _ _.” (root)
