English is a wonderful Language. For example:I told Miss: Take, to take this Paper and File it in the Paper File, without making any Mistake.Then I also told her that : when we go to the Court, to file the suit, against the man whowore the Black suit, we should not make any Mistake. We should also File our Nails, with the Nail File and not hit the Nail on the Head.She said she understood: about the Paper and File and Nail file, without any Mis Take.She then said bye bye..
Has anyone verified whether or not these words are homonyms?...dove-dove--

According to one definition, yes: a word of the same written form as another but of different meaning and usually origin, whether pronounced the same way or not.

According to another definition, no: a word pronounced the same as another but differing in meaning, whether spelled the same way or not.

According to a third definition, no: a word that is exactly the same as another in sound and spelling but different in meaning.

Resume; Please resume your speech. I need your resume in order to get the job.

Bow; Bow down to the king. Bow ties are cool.
