    A homonym is one of a group of words that share the same spelling or pronunciation (or both) but have different meanings.

    The word "homonym" comes from the conjunction of the Greek prefix homo- (meaning same) and suffix -onym (meaning name). Thus, it refers to two or more distinct words sharing the "same name".

    Shall we start our spark here?

    Let me start:
    Stalk- to follow someone, part of a plant
    To and Two (Too can also be included)

    Awaiting the game to be started!

    Regards
