    I did not see anything that supports what you are saying. Oh and axe is never a correct version of ask regardless of how many people misspeak.

    See pour and poor definitions/pronunciations.

    Heck, a goodly portion of the local population around here pronunce "axe" and "ask" the same.

    For what it's worth, I agree with markw on poor vs. pour. I have certainly heard pour pronounced rhyming with "boar" i.e. boer where the 'ou' becomes a subtle diphthong.

    I didn't mention it on account of our earlier dispute about been being sometimes pronounced "bean" rather than always "bin". These differences are regional; dictionaries typically don't list all the regional variations.

    It's getting to the point where I hope I don't start reusing pairs that someone else already threw out there. If I do, I'm through.

    Through, thru or threw but now I need to check on their previous usage.

    Upon further investigation, I see that threw/through were mentioned earlier. I'll submut these instead.

    burro, burrow, or boro
    flew and flu
    bite and byte

    Oh, and blue/blew and toe/tow

    Are you defining 'boro' as in borofluoride, (the chemical), or as in Brattleboro, (the Vermont town)?

    Either way, I tend to pronounce it as in "borrow", not burrow.

    I'm refering to the township aspect of it, as when it's attached to a town name but, yes, if it's used in a standalone fashion, the proper spelling is "Borough". I misspelled it.

    And, down here, all three are pronounced the same.

    How about "bow" and "bough" or "pane" and "pain". Were they used yet?

    I thought of one that has not yet been mentioned:

    Plaque (film buildup on teeth) / Plaque (commemorative plaque used to honor a person or event)

    Not only is it pronounced and spelled the same way, it also has very dissimilar meanings. Two of which are mentioned herein.

    Dude, you tried this one a few days ago. It's still on this same page. It didn't fly then and, obviously, it's not flying now.

    Yes and it was he that started the game. I follow his initial post as how it should be played.

    I don't think anyone has mentioned motive, i.e. a reason for doing something ...
    and, for us music lovers, motive, i.e. a repeating, short melody or musical theme -- also more commonly 'motif', but both are used. Motive/motif can used for any recurring artistic or literary subject.

    Well, some motives are downright insane. You've heard of the term "locomotive", haven't you?

    Another interesting word is forte. It is from the French fort.

    My forte(frt) is providing healthcare. Forte is pronounced as frt since that is the masculine form. For a woman it would be fr tā.

    As a musical term it is fr tā.

    In much of today's speech one word becomes widely used for both. Few of us today talk about our frt.
