Even though a homonym may be pronounced exactly like another word, it has a completely different meaning.
You should be very careful about mixing up a homonym and homophone in your test.
Some people say a homonym is a word that is spelled and sounds the same way as another word, while others say it is just a word that sounds the same as another.
The concept of a homonym is often confused or used interchangably with that of a homophone or homograph.
A homonym can be a difficult word to understand for ESL speakers.
Be sure to look for context clues if a homonym is giving you trouble.
