the confusion of words, such as The two Ronnies sketch: four candles or fork handles…..a poem.
Can you hear the difference?
Fork….or Four…Candles…or handles….
See the word, unheard, the difference.
Imagine a fork shaped candle?
Or four spade handles…
Words change, morph, but stay the same.
Homophones, it sounds like, confusion, illusion.
Playing games to gain our trust, learn the difference, yes we must.
So four is not fork and candle is not handle but together they mangle talk (not tourque).
