Feeley's English Homophone Dictionary
by Elizabeth J. Feeley and Philip P. Feeley

Feeley's English Homophone Dictionary is a specialized resource. Homophones are a particular feature of spoken and written English, words that have the same sound but different meanings and may have different roots and different spellings. This dictionary features... • a brief definition of the word • a pronunciation guide • identifies parts of speech • covers from early modern English to the present • provides examples of usage with references to the original • word category Clear and correct use of words is fundamental to good communication and Feeley's English Homophone Dictionary is a significant aid to doing so.

Elizabeth Feeley and Philip Feeley were inspired by both their teaching experience helping non-native speakers master the nuances of English and by decades of experience working alongside non-native speakers. Between them, the Feeley's have six academic degrees, four of them at the graduate level, so they are no strangers to rigorous research and analysis. They have drawn on their backgrounds in academic research, their experience teaching English as a second language, and their general love of and fascination with spoken and written English to produce a unique dictionary of English homophones. They live in Newfoundland and can be contacted at
