Words that have the same spelling, but differ in meaning when used in different contexts are called homographs. For example,

  1. A temple fair attracts a lot of crowds.
    Her performance in the test was fair.
  2. A rose is the king of flowers.
    The sun rose with a golden glow.

Think of 5 homographs and list them below. Then write 2 sentences of your own, to bring out the difference in meanings.

When words with the same spelling or pronunciation are used in such a way that they convey more than one meaning, the figure of speech involved is called a pun.
A pun is a play upon words. For example,

  1. Hello! How’s life?
  2. Hell, O! It’s a strife.

Find other examples of pun with the help of your parents/teacher.

In poetry, when a question is asked, not to get an answer, but to emphasise a point of fact, it is an example of Interrogation.

From a popular book of poems/the internet, write down 3-4 examples of Interrogation used in poetry.

  1. ___________________
