A while back, when I installed a spellchecker module for PooterGeek’s comments system, Old Peculiar picked at my use of the word “homonyms” in the accompanying warning. I was (of coarse) write to use it, if a little relaxed, as you will sea from a copy editor’s nice explanation of the relationship between homonyms, homophones, and homographs (alongside sum warnings of other linguistic traps).

Language a facinating thing. Thanks for that interesting ‘bon mot’? I expect you were correct in your relaxed use of the term homonym. But can it be rite to right ‘write’?
