What is a Homograph
Homographs are words of like spelling but with more than one meaning. A homograph that is also pronounced differently is a heteronym.
You think English is easy??

Just for Fun
The situation is changing again, but here are a few things to help keep you sane and, hopefully make you smile a little.
Just a smile
Talking to a friend recently, he told me that sitting having dinner one evening his wife said “If something happened to me, would you marry again. He was a bit surprised and didn’t really want to discuss it so he put her off. However, she persisted each evening until he finally relented and decided to talk about it.
“I suppose I would”, he said.
“Would you sell the house?” she asked.
“I don’t think so, he said, I would stay here”.
“What about our bed, would you sell that or both sleep in it?”
“It is a pretty new bed and very comfy so I guess I would keep it.”
“But you would sell my golf clubs, you wouldn’t let her use my golf clubs.”
“Oh no, she wouldn’t use you golf clubs, she’s left handed!”
I bumped into a chap outside the village hall and after chatting about Welton and Lincolnshire, I asked him “Have you lived in Welton all your life?”.
He paused, looked me in the eye and said ……….. “Not yet!”.
