    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 )

    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.

    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.
