    same sound different spelling right?

    can you think of a homophone with 4 spellings?
    (I have 1 but feel sure there are others)

    Is there a homophone with more than 4 spellings?

    Does - ay
    - aye
    - eye
    - I

    Count as four or three? My dictionary lists ay and aye as seperate words with the same meaning.

    I did a google search for homophones, and the only one with five I found is:

    so
    sew
    sow
    sough
    soh (alt. sp. for sol)

    Nice one! Never heard of sough (Derbyshire drainage ditch?) and had not thought of soh as alternative to sol.

    Give that man a banana!

    Surely 5 cannot be beaten? (or equalled!)
