Verbal puns (Puzzle No. 3,268)

This week's Word Salad is about homophone clues.  I find them pretty easy to identify and solve, since the universe of indicators is relatively small.  So naturally, Hot and Trazom give us a few more than usual in this week's puzzle.

Degree of difficulty (by standards of this weekly puzzle): kind of a mix, mostly easy.  The homophones are balanced  by a couple of more obscure words, but all the clues have at least one easy part.

Hozom's comment: "I Hear You," in which Hot and Trazom share their favorite homophone clues.  I can't say I find them memorable: much of the time, it feels like you have to fudge the pronunciation a little, but they're all legit.

Need hints?  Ask in the comments.  Solution and explanations will be posted Monday.
