Homographs and Heteronyms
This is a wonderful and funny piece of writing, for all of you who suffered through English classes, hated grammar and wonder why folk from other countries have a bit of trouble with the English language. I wish I had the skill to put this together but this was sent to me by a friend of mine, he did not know the author.
So I some research and the found out the author is Liv Hambrett an Australian writer living in Germany. She wrote this piece in 2013. Her writing and her books can be found on her website which is http://www.livhambrett.com / Liv did a lot of work on this, so please enjoy and check out her website for more of her writing.
