School fires employee after post about homophones

Tim Torkildson, the former employee at the Nomen Global Language Center, said he was removed from his role as head of social media because his boss believed that his post about homophones might give off the impression that the school promoted homosexuality.

A homophone, not to be confused with homosexual, is the name given to a word that sounds the name as another but has a different meaning, for example “witch” and “which”, or “carat” and “carrot”.
