Whoa, slow down there, English language! “Jogging,” which means “a brisk run for the purpose of exercise,” sounds nothing like “accomplice,” which is a hired helper.
We’re not done yet! “Place” not only doesn’t sound like “although” or have the same meaning – they aren’t even spelled alike!
Though they may share several letters, don’t be fooled! “Botany” has a completely independent meaning from the male given name “Lionel.”
It’s easy enough to confuse the adverb “steadily” with the eleventh month of the Gregorian calendar. Just blame the English language for being so gosh-darn nutty!
There’s just no end to this madness.
Know any other words that are neither spelled the same nor have the same meaning? Let us know in the comments!
