    1. jewelry
    2. bud
    3. knickknack (spelling?)
    4. bid
    5. Mary
    6. bowed (in the sense of “…to the queen”)
    7. merry
    8. baud
    9. bored/board
    10. marry
    11. bode (or “bowed” in the sense of bent)
    12. itch
    13. cue/queue
    14. thigh
    15. booed
    16. bayed
    17. imbued
    18. bard/barred
    19. bird/burred
    20. her (or Cat Town laugh “hurr hurr hurr”)
    21. could
    22. bad
    23. may
    24. lie
    25. into
    26. bead
    27. bide
    28. time/thyme
    29. people
    30. Shawn/Shaun/Sean (and I say “shone” this way)
    31. clothes
    32. bed

    The trickiest ones were marry/Mary/merry (I pronounce those all nearly the same way), “could” (I initially thought it was “cooed”), and I find it hard to distinguish theta from barred “O,” and to distinguish a lowercase alpha from an italicized, lowercase English letter “A.” Also, that schwa with hook is just weird.

    Thanks for the quiz!
