Why Are Homonyms Used in Sentences?

Answer

A homonym is one of a group of words that share pronunciations and spellings, but have completely different meanings. One example is of the word stalk, which could be a noun for a part of a plant or a verb for harassing someone. Another example is the word left, which could be a noun for the opposite of right or a verb meaning 'to leave.'
