The Sounds Like (Homophone) and Confusable Words Checker identifies words that sound the same but are spelled differently such as "eye" and "I" or words that are commonly confused, such as "through" and "thorough". When checking your writing or reading it aloud, these words might not be picked up. Multiple alternatives with audible definitions and sample sentences are given so you can be confident you have chosen the right word for your writing. Using this feature is often the last step when editing a paper before handing it in.
