    Question Knot and not

    Knot and not are pronounced in the very same way, aren't they?

    Yes, they are.

    Context will tell you which spelling you will need.

    Re: Knot and not

    just the same with "knight" and "night", ok?

    what about "clothes" and "close".

    are they pronounced the same way?

    thanks
