Homophones 4

Vydáno dne 09.01.2018

Homofony jsou slova, která stejně zní, ale jinak se píší. Zkuste si, zda znáte pár pokročilejších dvojic slovíček.

V každé větě vždy doplňte jedno slovo tak, aby věta dávala smysl. Stažené tvary (např. can't, won't) se počítají jako jedno slovo.
V každé dvojici vět se obě slova musí vyslovovat stejně.

Pozor! V některých případech jde o homofony pouze v britské angličtině!
