Homonym – rock

Shetland, August 2019

Rock (solid mineral material) versus rock (a genre of music)

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own homonym or homophone or homograph post. Feel free to pick any homophonic word or words and present it as you wish. There are many lists available (here for example), and here’s a poem by Thomas Hood to get you in the mood:

“His death, which happen’d in his berth,
At forty-odd befell:
They went and told the sexton, and
The sexton toll’d the bell.”

    1. Thanks for spotting it. I always work from a draft initially and if I do a save like that (before giving it’s proper title) that URL is saved and I have to remember to change it manually!! Changed now though ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Janet
