Shazza: Good grid (7 months, 1 week ago)

Joe: I'm from Berkshire and "One" and "won" are definitively homophones.
Maybe you're from Slough. Where the friendly bombs may fall. (7 months, 2 weeks ago)

Ruth: Fun thanks (7 months, 2 weeks ago)

Lebamski: A great fun grid - "eat" wasn't accepted as an answer for the "Ate" group, but other than that a fine challenge. As someone who has come a cropper with using homophones in grids in the past, I think conversations over whether something is/isn't a homophone in certain accents aren't particularly helpful or positive. If you didn't spot it this time because of that, just chalk it up as a minor flaw, leave some constructive feedback and move on. Anyway, thanks very much Stan Lee - very enjoyable!

Omegaman: Ate in different languages should be sufficient to be accepted. (7 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mister Tom: Nice and easy. (7 months, 2 weeks ago)

Only Me: Fun one to finish the day on. Thanks. (7 months, 2 weeks ago)

Orlando: Liked this. No expertise needed but tricky nonetheless. And doable! So many grids get rated as hard or fiendish. It's nice to see a solid medium -level one. (7 months, 2 weeks ago)

JamesD: Very nice, classic grid. And those homophones are fine, because (1) they don't have to perfect in all accents, and (won) they're pronounced the same in standard BBC English, for instance by Victoria Coren-Mitchell. (7 months, 3 weeks ago)

e: "One" and "won" are not homophones in Berkshire at least. "One" rhymes with "gone", while "won" rhymes with "gun". (7 months, 3 weeks ago)
