IMc, If you can match the tennis match where Murray won, the prize is a lighter instead of a match. (or a toaster or a river cruise)

Donegal ,if you take a second and go to the first post of the first page of this thread, not the second page, you will see that we are doing homographs here. 'Homo' - in Greek means 'same'. 'Graph' - 'write'. Same word, different meaning and sometimes different pronunciation. Also they may even have different origins. (Not to be confused with homophones and homonyms, although they may overlap.)

Here's a little riddle I found using homographs.

Why is a polka like beer?
Because there are so many hops in it.

(PS - I see IMc has become an American using check for cheque. Whistle But either way, we would take it. Whistle )

'I resemble this remark!', as Mr Marx was wont to say.

I am in possession of a perfectly valid Poetic Licence and not possessed in any way to adopt American verbiage - or is it nouniage here? My way of spelling was merely in keeping with the spirit of this thread.
End of rant.

Within the (my) rules or not, I can't resist repeating one of my favourite childhood rhymes:-

A fly and a flea flew up in a flue
Said the fly,"Let us flee"
Said the flea, "Let us fly"
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.


By the way, I prefer keeping to the spirit of the thread, as IMc said, rather than adhere to strict rules.

Meanwhile, I shall check out of this joint, go and check out the restaurent next door and hope they have a roast joint of meat to eat.

O.K..then it should read, judging by his own example, Use a Heteronym in a Sentence...I was confused because he said use the SAME WORD.. and then used two different words in his example...the definition of homograph, homophone etc always uses the plural.."words that"...etc... To show someone the spelling "contract" and ask them the meaning is impossible...they will have to give multiple meanings which will then make multiple words...Here is an example of the same word, with different meanings in a sentence..."the cold impersonal contract he signed in ink was in stark contrast to the original contract, formed by a mere handshake between great friends with a dream...

Where there is Hope, there is never a need to despair...

Especially when jacobusmaximus is around to shoot 'this bear' - then despair will no longer exist.

Isn't it funny that there is no net ball in Netball and that the net weight of a tennis net is equal to its gross weight? Unless it's wet of course, then the net weight is higher than the gross weight. Speaking of paradox...
