The other options refer to a section of writing, describing something or someone, and sloppy writing, which do not match the definition of "scribe". Therefore, the correct answer is "a person who writes things down".

Homographs are words that are spelled the same but have different meanings. In this case, "dove" is a homograph because it has two distinct interpretations depending on the context in which it is used.
