Why you cannot use homophones in lieu of the word you wanted to use when Lexigramming.
Big difference betwixt
PUREBRED vs PURE BREAD;
and
IN BREAD vs INBRED.

Another reason why using homophones in lieu of each other is a big no when Lexigramming.
Additionally, "HUN" is not an abbreviation for "HONEY";
and one could only use "HON" in a Lexigram if they also have the word "HONEY " from the letters of their "source"; (source=the name, phrase, date and so forth they are using to Lexigram.)
Note:
The use of abbreviations is allowed in Anagramming because of the severe limits of the process.
The homophones, HUN and HON are not the only ones. Here are more examples:
quote:
Hon:
abbreviation
Hon is defined as short for "honorable" or "honorary," both of which are terms used in professional settings to show respect.

More about the word HUN.
Definition of Hun for folks who may not be familiar with the term and would miss the joke above.

Concerning the issue of being "nit picky" about grammar and spelling errors, and homophone substitutions.
I just try to avoid people making serious spelling errors; not so much grammar.
The firm exception is when Lexigramming. I simply will not tolerate spelling errors and or homophone substitutions and slang/netspeak, such as; they're there there, and you ewe U, and your you're ur. Actually Lexigramming does not allow for such errors, often deliberate; because otherwise the resulting creations would not be Lexigrams.
I met a person online recently who irks me terribly with her errors in posts. (not here at LL)
She uses NO correctly, but then she also uses NO in lieu of KNOW, and TO she uses correctly, but then becomes lazy and or ignorant and uses TO in lieu of TOO and TWO.
So far she has not used THERE THEIR OR THEY'RE incorrectly.
