In the English language, there are words that are spelled differently, but they sound the same. These words are called homophones. For example, tee and tea are two words. They are pronounced the same, but one is spelled with an “a” on the end whereas the other words ends in an “e.” If a person says the word by itself, another person would not know which word the person is saying.
He or she would have to hear the word in a sentence. Then the person could figure out which word is being said based on the context clues in the sentence. Write and right are homophones. The wrong word is being used in the sentence, so in a sense it is misspelled.
