Sewing

Sew or so

Sew or so two words that sound the same but spelled differently.

Sew or so

Sew or so two words that sound the same but spelled differently.

Today for Sewing Saturday, I will blog about the word sew and so.

These words are examples of homophones.A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word but has a different meaning and/or spelling.

Sometimes we might use homophones creatively, for example, instead of saying so cool, I will say sew cool.

So

Old English swā, of Germanic origin; related to Dutch zo and German so.

adverb

  1. to such a great extent.”the words tumbled out so fast that I could barely hear them”
  2. to the same extent (used in comparisons).”he isn’t so bad as you’d think”

conjunction

  1. and for this reason; therefore.”it was still painful so I went to see a specialist”
  2. with the aim that; in order that.”they whisper to each other so that no one else can hear”

Sew

Old English siwan, of Germanic origin, from an Indo-European root shared by Latin suere and Greek suein.

verb

verb: sew; 3rd person present: sews; past tense: sewed; gerund or present participle: sewing; past participle: sewn

  1. join, fasten, or repair (something) by making stitches with a needle and thread or a sewing machine.”she sewed the seams and hemmed the border”Similar:stitchmachine stitchembroiderseamhemtackbasteattachfastendarnmendrepairpatchcloutOpposite:unpickremoveriptear
  2. attach (something) to something else by sewing.”she could sew the veil on properly in the morning”
  3. make (a garment) by sewing.”the two sisters sewed their own dresses”

Another sewing word with different meanings, the other day, I blogged on the word “thread” and how it has two different meanings. However, that word is spelled the same unlike sew and so.

You can also do sew sew for so so.

If I comment on things, I will use “sew” for “so”.
