Collins COBUILD English Guides provide extensive information on specific areas of today's English, using the evidence from The Bank of English to select what is really important.
This book is suitable for upper-intermediate and advanced students and teachers of English. Homophones - words which sound the same but are spelled differently - can present problems for students, and a good knowledge of them can help to improve spelling and increase vocabulary.
Covering more than 700 of the most common homophones in English, the contrastive entries deal systematically with meaning and grammar, with real examples taken from The Bank of English. Thorough cross-referencing, clear explanations linking words to their base forms where appropriate, and a comprehensive index make words easy to find.ISBN:
