Homophones/Homographs/Rhyming words/Homonyms

 Google Definition:-
A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning, and may differ in spelling. The words may be spelled the same, such as rose (flower) and rose (past tense of "rise"), or differently, such as carat, caret, and carrot, or to, two, and too.
vocabulary.com Definition
A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word but has a different meaning and/or spelling. “Flower” and “flour” are homophones because they are pronounced the same but you certainly can’t bake a cake using daffodils.

Google Definition;
    Each of two words having the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spelling (e.g., to, too, and two);

vocabulary.com Definition;
A rhyme is when two words sound alike, particularly in poetry when rhyming words are at the end of multiple lines. When similar sounds in multiples bound, that’s rhyme.

Thanks so much for your interesting blog, I think Google Definitions are easier to learn than vocabulary.com Definitions.

Oi AReality,

      Nice job, the issue you were kind to move is very frustrating for the beginners learning the English language...hmm... I can only guess that not only the poor beginners have trouble with these words, LOL.

   It's a pity that the title and author of the closing poem was not mentioned. It is one of my best liked poems - The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.

  Once again, thanks for the great job, hope to read more of this kind of blogs from you.
