    Wink Re: homograph

    A homograph is a word spelled the same way as another word but having a different meaning, sometimes with a different pronunciation as well.

    bow noun [bau] - the front part of a ship
    bow noun [bou] - a type of knot; a type of weapon for shooting arrows
    bow verb [bau] - to bend your body forwards, to show respect for somebody
