The homonym game

hom·o·nym
Quote:
ˈhäməˌnim,ˈhōməˌnim/Submit
noun
plural noun: homonyms
each of two or more words having the same spelling but different meanings and origins (e.g., pole1 and pole2); a homograph.
each of two words having the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spelling (e.g., to, too, and two); a homophone.
Please no googling or cheating! Its so much fun and satisfying to come up with one on your own. I'd love to say I am an expert but it seems like when I really concentrate on it, I cant think of any but when its hanging out in the back of my mind somewhere one will just come to me.
Maybe I am lame but I get super excited when that happens.
Again, please dont cheat it takes the fun out of it and there are no winners here, its just for fun.

Okay, my turn:
Polish- the nationality
polish- the beauty product for nails.

(you dont have to have a explain what you mean if you dont want to but its helpful to give context)

Re: The homonym game

Book (bound sheets of text, e.g. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
Book (financial record, e.g. to cook the books (don't do that))
Book (to make a reservation, e.g. to book a flight)

Not sure if this counts since it's informal, but sometimes the Bible is referred to as just "the Book" or "the good Book" too. So I've got 3½ homonyms for book? I'm sure there are more too, English is not my native language so I'm probably missing a few definitions. Feel free to add more if you can come up with them!
