pronunciation & spelling: way … weigh

Just a few sound clips … to show you how easy it is to pronounce and spell these homonyms!

We all know “one way street …” ((sens unique dans tous ses sens)) [audio:|titles=one way street] and we know that there’s more than “one way” : Which way? Oh dear … No way! ((impossible!))[audio:|titles=no way]

Talking pounds and kilos … How much does it weigh?

weigh <pronunciation> way [audio:|titles=way]

Oh dear I just realized … the noun form of weigh is … weight. Which is pronounced just like wait.  “Heaven can wait” wasn’t that the name of a movie?

weight <pronunciation> wait [audio:|titles=wait/weight]

surely there are others … any suggestions?
