So I was just getting my weekly dose of Extra Ordinary and one of the comments on this week's edition is about the word "bow" because it is both a homophone (sound the same but have different spellings or meanings) and a heteronym (same spelling, different pronunciation)... and because I am a big giant geeky nerd I immediately got to thinking about the different uses and meanings...
to bow - verb, to bend at the waist
bow - /ˈbaʊ/ - noun, to bend at the waist ie. to take a bow
bow - /ˈbaʊ/ - noun, the fore of a ship
bow - /ˈboʊ/ - noun, an archery weapon used with an arrow
bow - /ˈboʊ/ - noun, a kind of knot ie. to tie a bow
bow - /ˈboʊ/ - noun, something you use to play a stringed instrument
Can you think of any other crazy word wonders??
I have been posting the weirdest stuff since I've been on vacay, no?? I promise there will be outfits and recipes coming soon!! I have actually been getting dressed each day and done some random spots of cooking and baking... I just haven't got around to getting photos up... I have been regaling a few travel tales I would love to share with you all as well... but for now, it's bed time!!
Hope you had a great weekend and are having a good start to the week!
