    Welcome to the forums, Kookland,
    Please start again, with a single question per thread.

    To avoid copyright entanglements with other sites, please provide a link to the sight where you saw the homophones, and phrase your question so that it does not infringe on material published elsewhere.

    These are discussion forums, and not a good venue for research. Lists which request a 'yes or no' reply are not appropriate here.

    Also, please give a more specific thread title for each query.

    Thanks for your understanding,
