    No it isn't. A homophone is two different words that are pronounced the same, such as knight and night. Dumbass

    each of two or more words having the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spelling


    Negro- 18-19 century term for a person of color now considered offense by many

    Negro- a Spanish word pronounced differently referring to a color.

    My original definition was correct as is yours patchetic attempt at making me look wrong.

    No. Not the "same word"...two or more words that are pronounced the same but mean different things. As in 'witch' or 'which'.

    In the future, when you think "Hey! I can educate others on grammar!". Kick yourself in the a$$.
    Some folks just need a high-five. Some just need a high-five to the face.

    Oh ffs...Negro is a homograph. -graph meaning how a word is written or drawn
    Pitcher (as in baseball) and pitcher (as in vessel) is a homonym: said OR spelled the same way, but each with a different meaning.
    PE's example of knight and night is a good homophone. -phone meaning how a word sounds.

    You need to go back and finish the third grade so you can spell words before trying to lecture anyone here about grammar structure, vocabulary or definitions. For example:

    My original definition was correct as is yours patchetic attempt at making me look wrong.
    WTF does this sentence even mean?

    ...but I do have Asian, Hispanic, Liberal, Consevative, Coptic Christian, Evangelical, Jewish friends.

    So what is your point?

    Contradict yourself much? You are clearly wrong, but people like you will not admit it, always deflecting, blaming others.
