Homophones List

Here’s a complete A-Z list that contains thousands of different homophones.

We’ve included as many different homophones as we could find, but also have some guidelines you can read that explain how these words made it on to our list, as well as the reasons why some were left off.

If you think we’ve missed some words out of our homophones list, we’d love to hear from you! Just get in touch here to share your ideas – if they get added to the list, we’ll give you a credit on this page.

Needless to say, this list is pretty long. If you want to find a specific word and its related homophones, there are a few ways you can do this:

  • Look through the list for the word(s) you need (it’s in alphabetical order)
  • Use the CTRL + F search functionality in your browser to search the page for the word(s)
  • Use our search box in the top right corner of the page – this will search the entire site

For words that are used more often in everyday language, you may prefer our list of most common homophones.

If you find that this page is helpful, you may also find all our homophone activities useful too – we have loads of free homophone worksheets, riddles, jokes, games and more.
