Homophones #5

Vydáno dne 17.06.2019

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!
