DARE Queries ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Mon, 6 Mar 1995 01:34:36 CST From: "Krahn, Al" Subject: AWFUL OFFAL I was browsing a book for reading teachers the other day and it contained a list of homophones. Among them was the set of words "awful" and "offal." I was just wondering if these are homophones for anyone else besides the folks in Englewood Cliffs NJ. The thought of these being homophones to me is just awful. AKRA Albert E.
