  • What is this paradox?

    There is a paradox which describes how you can use the same spelling of a word, and use it's different meanings to construct a sentance using nothing but that word. I was looking at it on wikipedia a few weeks ago but I've lost the link.

    I dunno. Perhaps homonym?

      No lol. An example of it would be:

      Rang (Person 1) rang (verb) Rang (Person 2).

      There are much better examples than mine though. And I'm sure one of them involves an island.

        It seems .. a homonym is one of a group of words that share the same spelling or pronunciation (or both) but have different meanings .. I wasn't too far off

        heteronyms then?

        It has been years since I had to study this

        [edit] I guess that's it ..

        [23:09] <!Floris> ?google define: heteronym
        [23:09] <service> (HET er e nim) noun, One of two or more words with identical spelling, but different meanings and pronunciations. @ http://www.terrycolon.com/word.html ( http://www.google.com/search?hl=all&...e:%20heteronym )
