    Sorry to be pedantic but if they are spelt differently then they are different words with different meanings

    Fair and Fair is the only example i've seen here with the same spelling and different meanings (sorry if I missed others)

    Fair - all the fun of the Fair
    Fair - That's fair

    Now I'm confused which doesn't take much!
    I thought the idea was words that:-

    Are spelt differently to each other
    Have a different meaning to each other

    But

    Sound the same


    Just had another look at the thread title and first post with instructions which confirms.
