As a Nigerian i can’t help but notice how we tend to overlook nuances in our vocabulary. Today i will be discussing the differences between Sight, Site and Cite. As you would have noticed, the aforementioned words are homophones.
1. Sight: This directly refers to the ability to a person to see as a verb (action) e.g tell me when you sight seun. As a noun, it means the power/ faculty of seeing e.g a snake’s sight is poor in dim light.
2. Site: A site is a geographical location/ point of the earth e.g the proposed site of an airport.
3. Cite: to quote or mention a book/ journal/ document (especially an authority on a subject) to support an argument or a theory e.g he cited the work of Albert Einstein to support his claim
