Faint (adj, vi, n), Feint (n, vi/vt)

Here are five worksheets on the homophones faint and feint. These are relatively complicated words: faint is, as above, an adjective, a verb used only intransitively, and a noun (only the first two parts of speech, the adjective and the verb, are dealt with on these worksheets). Feint is a noun and a verb used both intransitively and transitively, and is only dealt with as a verb on these worksheets. Students probably ought to know both of these words; in any case, this worksheet presents an opportunity to deal with the parts of speech and using words properly in speech and prose.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
