Reed's Homophones: A Comprehensive Book of Sound-alike Words (Hardcover)
Reed's Homophones offers a serious but light-hearted overview of several thousand homophone pairs that confuse readers and writers of English. Along with an explanation of the Latin and Greek root words that are found as prefixes in hundreds of English words, the book delves into mondegreens, neologisms, odd synonyms and antonyms, and a few of the author's pet peeves, and includes a handy list of easily confused words.
This book was created to be used and enjoyed by anyone who loves the English language. Though originally compiled to help professional writers and editors, it should prove equally useful to business owners, marketing specialists, undergraduates, students and teachers of ESL, bloggers . . . in short, anyone who loves the language and wants to write well enough that the words they use don't come back to haunt or embarrass them.
