Would you seek shelter from the rain underneath a canape or a canopy? When you walk through a deep valley, do you walk through a cannon, a canon, or a canyon? Does a horse canter or cantor? Would you eat a carat, a caret, a carrot, or a karat?

I frequently see cannon and canon confused, but for me the first meaning of canon is a religious office, like a priest and the second is as a body of work.

I didn't know the US uses carat for jewels and karat for gold. In British English it is carat for gold.
