The words “ball” and “bawl” are two different words that mean different things. The only thing they have in common is the similarity in the sound when these words are pronounced. A ball is a noun that describes a round-shaped object.

A ball is also used when playing many sports games such as soccer, tennis, basketball, and volleyball. Bawl has two meanings; this is based on its function in a sentence. Bawl can mean to shout, scream, or to call out noisily. Bawl can also mean to weep or to cry loudly.

The ball is known to be an object that is normally used for games. There are some balls that are used for basketball games and other types of sports. To bawl is a verb. This means to cry but in a more obvious manner. There are a lot of kids who consider bawling when they do not do well or if their parents became mad at them because of something that they have done.

Yet, it is still completely normal for adults to bawl their eyes out after a bad day or after experiencing something bad. These two words may sound similar but it is evident that they have different meanings that people should be familiar with.
