I have long had a fascination with homophones, not even knowing they were called homophones. Maybe it is because so many homophones are used as Dad Jokes, and the groans after a Dad Joke are often better than the joke.

“Homophones are words pronounced alike but different in meaning or derivation or spelling. These words may be spelled differently from each other (such as to, too, and two), or they may be spelled the same way (as in quail meaning ‘to cower’ and quail meaning a type of bird.” (Google search which used

This effort was started in 2020, and I completed a first pass document by 26 November 2022 during a visit to Melanie’s family in Bulverde, Texas. There was a second pass document by 09 April 2023, and then I started adding definitions for the project to be more “whole.” The document was “completed” 26 June 2024. And, of course, it is not complete. For instance, in coming up with 100 six-line verses, where each line is a set of homophones, I forgot to add “pi” and “pie,” even though I had made the image of “pies” and “pi” for this song back before the 2nd pass document in 2023. Also, I do not have the homophones “quail” and “quail,” which came up in the definition used when “Homophones and Quilts” was posted as Grandkidlet #24.27. There are at least 2 lines where homophones were repeated on other lines, starting with another spelling. I discovered this when recording the verses. And there are at least 2 sets of homophones, which I entered at the end, and which are not alphabetical, and thus do not have definitions. Too much work to add them, and then move each line to keep all of the homophones alphabetical.

Do, there are 100 verses, or 600 sets of homophones in this work. A lot of Dad Jokes. There are 1,577 definitions, which should mean there are at least 1,588 words which are homophones. This means there is an average of 2.628 homophones per line in the song. It was hard to sing some of the verses, because the sentences are often so random. So, some verses were recorded a dozen times to get the version used. The merged version of 100 verses is 38.8 MB in size and lasts over an hour. I recognize I am probably the only one in the world willing to listen to this whole thing. Oh well! This is not unusual for some of my more off the wall projects, like filling our yard with rocks from Southern Utah or turning each chapter of The Book of Mormon into a 4 line stanza, and then putting all of the stanzas to “music” (see
