Dictionary Word Appraisal

I just bought ORONYMS.COM. Any ideas of value?

Oronyms (or homophones) are words which sound the same. Generally the word homophone is used to describe one of a pair or group of words that have the same sound (like prince and prints; allowed and aloud), whilst oronyms are normally strings of words (phrases) such as iced ink and I stink.

Here are some more examples:

ICQ
I seek you

The good can decay many ways
The good candy came anyways

The stuffy nose can lead to problems
The stuff he knows can lead to problems

Re: Dictionary Word Appraisal

First I have heard of this, and I enjoy reading dictionaries. But, you may do well with a specialized site about this, if you have the passion to develop it.

Re: Dictionary Word Appraisal

That's actually what I was thinking of doing: create a site that defines oronyms and then lists classic examples. Perhaps even allowing users to make submissions and rate words, or tag them by theme............................ and then sell it to dictionary.com

At any rate, blast, thank you for your feedback.

Re: Dictionary Word Appraisal

Take a look at http://urbandictionary.com/ for an example of how such a site can work.
