Somebody - Some butter

Those two words sound alike don't they? A great (and funny) discussion came up in class about this. In a dialogue activity,  "I want some butter." was pronounced "I want somebody." 

Then, we talked about all of the words that end in 'body'

  • everybody
  • somebody
  • anybody
  • nobody

This week, pay attention to how often you say the word 'some' and how often you say 'someone' or 'somebody'. This is a word English learners hear a lot but can't always discern.
