  • confirmation ==>

    Additional proof that something that was believed (some fact or hypothesis or theory) is correct

    “fossils provided further confirmation of the evolutionary theory”

    conformation ==>

    A symmetrical arrangement of the parts of a thing

  • Conform Meaning

  • Conformation Definition

  • Confirm = Verify

    Conform = Acknowledge

  • Confirm means to verify

    Conform means to adjust to another method/style

  • Confirmation = agreement to or of some-thing.

    Conformation =

    adjust your way of thinking/life-style/beliefs/Ethics/Morals/etc. to Some-one else`s way of thinking/life-style/beliefs…etc.

    Sentence = Confirmation:

    `yes , i agree that this action will advantage our Business Principle and its Performance in the Market Place`.

    Sentence = Conformation:

    (personal thoughts , = i don`t believe this rubbish).

    (agreement decided = out-wardly spoken) YES , this will helps us to gain Market Advantage!

    (even though you don`t think it will)…!

  • This is a list of homophones which have been adapted from a list given for

    “General American English” by Evan Antworth. Permission to alter the list

    and permission to include the list in our database offerings to Australian

    researchers was obtained by Julie Vonwiller. It is based on

    the book _Handbook of Homophones_ by William Cameron Townsend, 1975.

    For the purpose at hand, the list contains words that sound the same (or

    very nearly the same) but are spelled differently. Thus the list includes

    “bear” and “bare” but not “bear” (noun) and “bear” (verb). However, the list

    does occasionally include spelling variants of the same word when there

    is another word in the same entry; for instance, “ax,axe,acts” is in the list

    but not “blessed,blest”.(Note that the only difference between

    “homophones” and “spelling variant” is whether or not the words are

    lexically “the same”.)

    Obviously, the determination of what counts as sounding the “same”

    depends on the dialect of the speaker. Some of the entries in this list may

    be homophones in my speech but not yours (for instance, “awed” and “odd”.

    The designation “General American English” should be sufficient to

    disallow strong regional dialects (in the south, “tire” and “tar” can be

    homophones!) while allowing for some minor variation. For instance, there

    are entries for “cot,caught” and “marry,merry,Mary”.

    The list contains a few proper names, which are capitalized; e.g. “Pete”

    and “peat”. I think this is useful as long as proper names are limited to

    common ones. (Proper names that differ only in case from common nouns

    are not included, e.g. “bill,”Bill”.) If any and all proper names were fair

    game, I fear we would be off and running (how about “Malays” and

    “malaise”?). But I am open to advice.

    The format of the list is as follows. Each set of homophones is on a single

    line terminated by a return. The members of a set are separated by

    commas with no trailing spaces. (Thus it is essentially the same as

    “comma-delimited” database format.) The list is alphabetized by the first

    word (the headword) in each set (line). Each word in the list occurs as a

    headword; thus each word occurs at least twice: once as a headword and at

    least once in the tail of the list. This scheme permits retrieval from the

    list by examining the headword of each line only. For instance:



    In general, regularly inflected forms of an entry are not included; thus the

    list contains “bough,bow” but not “boughs,bows”. Do you think it is worth

    adding such entries?
