Multiple Meaning Words

8 Questions  I  By Hsanchez
Linguistics Quizzes & Trivia
A number of words have more than one meaning, even though the spelling does not change.   You can usually determine which meaning is intended in a certain sentence by reading the rest of the sentence or the rest of the paragraph.   For example, if you read that soldiers returned to their compound, you know that compound means "a walled-in area of buildings," not "a sentence with two clauses" or "a word made from two smaller words. "  The word soldiers is the clue to the correct meaning of compound in this sentence.   Look for the underlined word in the following sentences and choose its correct meaning.
