Dumb Language Analysis
  • Transcript


    I always seem to get homophones and homonyms mixed up.

    Language often seems to be designed to be confusing.

    So if I use a measuring scale to help scale the wall .. that's a homophone right?

    Right. Although you'd pretty much need a bunch of scales, and decent balance. Not an ideal climbing tool.

    But if I use a flower to make some flour, that's a homonym, right?

    Right, and let's not even get started on heteronyms and homographs! Using your bass to catch a bass? That's something different!
