Another figure of speech

Posted on January 11, 2015 at 1:58 PM
HAPPY NEW YEAR to my fellow book worms! You know how I enjoy the English Language, well I found a figure of speech that I had not heard of;  HOMONYMN- what is it?
A Homonymn is a word that has two completely different meanings. Here are a few examples to give you an idea:
 
Tire:        a rubber wheel           to become exhausted
 
Fire:         smoke and flames       to lose one's job
 
Lead:        to show the way          a heavy metal
 
Bear:         an animal                    to carry a burden
 
Tear:         eye fluid                    to rip apart
 
Fine:          not coarse                  a monetary penalty
 
File :         to arrange alphabetically        a tool to smoothen a surface
 
 
I often sit reading through my Thesaurus. What a wonderful tool, there is so much information in there, not only can you expand your vocabulary, learn the meaning of words, find alternate words for a particular word, you can also learn about figures of speech. The Engish language is complex! A dictionary doesn't always give you the information that you need.
 
Thesaurus is latin for "treasure house".

I am so glad to read your views about wishing and interesting speech because Sometimes, people use a colloquial phrase of "it figures" or "go figure", which is kind of an acknowledgement of the correctness of a fact, or something like that. It's also sometimes abbreviated even further to just "Figures" or "Go fig", depending on the speaker

Aside from an excellent product or service or service that your company has to offer, it is equally important to learn how to sell this product or service or service to other people.cashmio
