Craziness of the English Language #2

1mks1mks on 09/24/2006

CrazinessoftheEnglishLanguage2 Photo This quiz will deal with homographs. A homograph, according to Webster's New World Dictionary, is "a word with the same spelling as another but with a different meaning". The English language is indeed crazy. Sometimes it is very difficult to teach children the differences in those words since they are spelled the same. I will give you a sentence with two missing words. The answer will be a word that can have multiple meanings and pronunciations. You will have to choose the one word that would fit in both blanks. It should not be difficult but you will have to stop and think! Have fun!
