Sorry, folks, but the "entries" for A, B, E, H, M, and N are INCORRECT. They are not homophones or homonyms but only similar in pronunciation. For "air" try "err" or "heir"; for "bear", "bare"; there IS no homophone for "ear", unless you're a Cockney; "hair" and "hare" are correct, OR "here" and "hear"; "mare" and "mere" are not homophones, nor are "nee" and "knee". Now for my turn at "T": easy shmeasy! "tee" and "tea"! For "u": "use", "ewes", and "yews". For "v": "vary" and "very". And now I'll let the rest of you have fun with the final four.

Someone explained that American English & British English have different pronunciations. To your ear it might not sound same, in your dialect but in others yes.

Are you British?

Canadian. Yes, folks, we have the best of both sides of the Atlantic.
"Ear" is pronounced "eer" and has no homophone. (Except the Hebrew for city!) And don't try to tell me that "hair" and "hare" sound like "here" and "hear". The first two are pronounced as "herr", the second two as "heer".
"Mare" is pronounced as "merr", "mere" as "meer".
"Nee" is the FRENCH word for "born" (used when publishing a married woman's maiden name) (in feminine singular), and is pronounced "nay".
As a proofreader for the military, I come across works by American, British, and Canadian authors, and have become quite "adept" at being "adaptable".
