Homonyms:

Homonyms Homonyms , or multiple meaning words,  are words that share the same spelling and the same pronunciation but have different meanings . In non-technical contexts, the term "homonym" may be used (somewhat confusingly) to refer to words that are either homographs  or  homophones.

Examples:

Examples Bear - A  bear  (the animal) can  bear  (tolerate) very cold temperatures . Left - The driver turned  left  (opposite of right) and  left  (departed from) the main road . Stalk - stalk  (part of a plant) and  stalk  ( follow/harass a person )

Homophones:

Homophones

Homophones:

Homophones (literally "same sound") are usually defined as words that share the same pronunciation, regardless of how they are spelled . Homophones that are spelled the same are also both  homographs and   homonyms .  Homophones that are spelled differently are also called  heterographs.

Examples:

Examples Rose -   rose (flower ) and  rose  (past tense of "rise ") addition  for math , edition  of a book. I want  to   go , I like it  too , One plus one is  two. pick a  flower ,bake with  flour

Homographs:

Homographs

Homographs:

Homographs A  homograph  is a word that shares the same written form as another word but has a different meaning . When spoken, the meanings may be distinguished by different pronunciations, in which case the words are also  heteronyms.

Examples:

Examples Bass - bass  as in fish vs   bass  as in music. Bow - bow  as in arrow vs   bow  as in bending or taking a  bow  at the end of a performance. Close - close  as in next to vs   close  as in shut the door. Dessert - desert  as in dry climate vs   desert  as in leaving alone.
