Saturday Photohunt *WIND*


KATIE:  Hi everyone, Katie here. Today's photohunt theme is *WIND.*  What– you were expecting to see the wind blowing through my furs?  Well you know us. We love Heteronyms.

WAFFLES TOO:  Huh?

KATIE:  You know, two words that are spelled the same but have different pronunciations and meanings. Those are Heteronyms. Today's word is a Heteronym.

Example A: The wind blew through my furs as I sniffed the spring breeze.
Example B: I swear to Cod, Waffles Too is like a bad wind-up toy. 

WAFFLES TOO: Um, I thought I was a cat.

KATIE:  Actually Waffles, you're a Homonym. Two words that are spelled and pronounced the same but have different meanings. The waffles you eat with maple syrup is spelled and pronounced the same as Waffles the annoying, orange kitten. See?  You're a Homonym.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  3. Great English lesson. Mom says that you did very well. She should know...she's an English tutor. No, not Tudor, as in the dynasty; but tutor, as in the teacher.

    Purrs,
