Learn how Homonyms can be a way to enrich your French vocabulary

For French learners, homonyms are trouble-makers! They are words that sound the same but have a different meaning and spelling. Confusing? As you slowly enlarge your vocabulary, you’ll see that they won’t be that much of a problem . The context will often give you the meaning of the word, and you’ll grow to recognize the spelling more and more easily as you get familiar with the language.

Here are a few examples of homonyms:

  • Et (and) / Il/Elle est (He/She is)/ Tu es (You are) /  une haie (a hedge) / Je/Tu hais (I/You hate)
  • Un mur (a wall) / une mûre (a blackberry) / mur (ripe)
  • Un coup (a hit) / un cou (a neck)
  • Le ver (the worm) / vert (green) / vers (towards) / le verre (the glass)
