She was a very wee slip of a girl, slender and supple like a willow. Her family descended from a long line of shaman priests whose sole purpose was to protect the sanctity of words. The warrior princess flew to all parts of the world in order to save homophones from the abuse of those who cared little of proper English. Her pen was the sword with which she dashed the evil word meanies.
One day, she noticed something H-O-M-O-P-H-O-N-E-S and H-O-M-O-P-H-O-B-E-S. Two words which are similarly spelled. Change one letter, and the entire word changes.
Warrior Princess thought, Hmm, I wonder if anyone else noticed this? Because if they did, they might mistake a word defining words that sound the same but have different meanings with a word meaning a person was afraid of homosexuals.
So, WP decided to throw out a few words. She laced them on a line and cast them over the sea. Their and there and they're. Sea and see. Site and sight and cite. Bee and be. Assent and ascent.
What would she catch while trolling for homophones?
What do you think?
