    Consider this sentence

    In an Island called Iceland where I live there was a live event in the night when a knight fought a bandit.

    There are various words with same pronunciation but different meaning and spelling

    example;

    right/write
    sight/cite/site
    bear/bare
    base/bass
    bay/bey
    be/bee
    beach/beech
    beat /beet
    pair/pear
    boy/buoy
    days/daze
    beau/bow
    billed/build

    So anyone can contribute on how to deal with this challenge !

    Anyone can contribute on how to understand and use better this words
