    Maybe I didn't make a fool of myself after all. heehee I looked homonym up in the dictionary cuz it bothered me that I couldn't remember. According to Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary a homonym is "one of two or more words spelled and pronounced alike but different in meaning (as the noun quail and the verb quail)" and a homophone is "one of two or more words pronounced alike but different in meaning or derivation or spelling (as the words to, too, and two) 2 : a character or group of characters pronounced the same as another character or group" Maybe me not so dumb after all. ;)

    Could be, but neither of those definitions really fit. Although homophone is closer. I'm talking things like 'live' and 'read'. Each with two different conotations. Same spelling, different pronounciations, different meanings.

    Anyway, I'll stop this now since I don't want to bore any of you who aren't geeks out there (is there someone who isn't?) :) Besides, there may not even be a word for this. I'll have to make one...

    Oh, duh! Hello to me!!! You're right let's not bore anybody. But I get what you're saying now. It's a homograph.

    OKAY, I promise. No more geeky posties. ;)
    Sorry everybody.

    Mike1, sorry for the short notice and sorry for not PMing you, but I thought you would see this quicker. Jenn and I are going to Asahi tonight around 6ish. You're more than welcome to join us. Give me a call.
