Take the first part of the word: homo Latin for 'same'. :p
Sea, See Ax, Acts Ball, Bawl Rain, Reign Wail, Whale
There are dozens and dozens of them out there. :D
I'm talking about words that are spelled exactly the same but have multiple ways of saying. An example being Admin which I've heard said like Add-men as well as Ad-min (It sounds like you're saying Administrator but you stop at Admin. List any other words that you all think are interesting that have multiple ways of pronunciating.
EDIT: Agh, the forums are time warping again! Oh, and you guys have misinterpreted what I meant. I didn't mean they had the same sound and different spelling, I meant it's the same word it's just the way that you say it (Perhaps because of an accent) An example would be Can. You could say it with an AH sound or an EH sound. Like that, but not such basic words since we're not in Primary school.

Wind, I suppose...and wound as well. Um...
My favorite: Read (v.) we will read the book and Read, I read the book. How about tomato:…you say tomā´to, I say tomä´to… Library…lot of folks pronounce it as liberry. There and their, though and thou, die and dye… :sillyme:
red and read I personally use to use "half" instead of have. Like I "half" to go to the store. Couple of people called me on it on the GM. balls and ball(z) I see that z shit on ut all the time. Kids get on and talk trash trying to be "leet."
Solid Snake;3419890 Ax, Acts
The pronunciation of those two is actually different. With "acts" you can hear the T very good, with "ax" you don't pronounce a T.
Him, Hymn Course, Coarse Rode, Road
One that always bugged me is when people said something like "Let me Ax you something," instead of Ask, that is so irritating. Kinda like the word guestimate.
In the English language there are NO two words that mean the same thing. I stress English here, and not any corrupted Aussie or US meaning.
