Bail or Bale?

Your choice!


Exemple : ‘’His bail is set at £2000.’’

“Bail” and “bale” are homonyms which can cause confusion regarding their usage. “Bail” can be used as a noun to relate to money which can be paid in order to allow a person who has been accused of crime to be released from custody until their trial takes place. It can also be used as a verb with the same meaning.


Exemple : ‘’The hay bale is blocking the road.’’

“Bale” is a noun relating to large amounts of materials such as hay which are bound tightly together and used, for example, on farms or in fields.
