Common Chinese homophones having two or more syllables

Certainly there are many, many Chinese homophones. Here I will largely or entirely be including only ones I have happened upon in the course of everyday life.

I expect I will keep adding to this list over time. Sorted by Pinyin, then by English meaning. Some character(s) may be shared between (or potentially among) homophones.

gōngkè
  • 公克 gram
  • 功課 homework
shuǐpíng
  • 水平 level (noun)
  • 水瓶 water bottle

I try to put similarly common homophones resulting from tone sandhi in this other blog entry.
