Homographs Words with Meaning!

Homograph, which means “same writing” in Greek, denotes that words have the same structure. Homographs, like homophones, have the same spelling but different meanings; but, unlike homophones, homographs may have unique pronunciations. Advocate, for example, is a noun that denotes “a person who speaks up for another person” when pronounced with a short /a/ sound. When you pronounce it with a long /a/ sound, it becomes a verb that denotes “to assist or plead the case of another person.”
