Multiple Meanings

 

Homographs

This week we will be talking about words with multiple- more than one- meaning. These are also known as HOMOGRAPHS. (HOMO= same and I bet that you remember from biography that GRAPH= writing.   That means same + writing. Words written the same but with different meanings!)

Take the word blue for example…

My favorite color is blue.

I felt blue when my cousin moved away.

Let’s start by reviewing parts of a dictionary entry. Then let’s practice.

 Now LET’S PLAY!
