Interested in Language
Can I say that polysemy is always between words that have the same part of speech whereas homonymy is always between words that have different parts of speech?
Examples for homonymy:
Examples for polysemy:
star n (a natural luminous body visible in the sky especially at night)
star n (the principal member of a theatrical or operatic company who usually plays the chief roles)
Please, I want some examples for polysemy.
