WORDPLAY FUN!

Copyright 2017. Marvin Terban. All rights reserved.

Did  you notice that all of the wordplay on this page is about homonyms? Those are words that are spelled differently but sound alike, like "eight" and "ate." Try to find other examples like these in newspapers, magazines, ads, books, and on line.

People who write newspaper headlines or ads often use clever wordplay. Wordplay is when words play with each other and with you. Here are some examples I found. Do you understand the wordplay? Look for some examples yourself.
