Soar (vi) and Sore (adj)

Here are five worksheets on the homophones soar and sore.

Soar is an intransitive verb, though it also has use as a noun, meaning “the range, distance, or height attained in soaring” and “the act of soaring: upward flight.” The noun isn’t tagged as archaic in Merriam-Webster’s; I don’t know about you, but I’ve never used soar as a noun.

Sore, of course, is an adjective, and it’s how you feel after an injury or other trauma, or after intense exercise.

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.
