Homographs .. what is the largest?

Recommended Posts

Today I found out that a homographs is a word that share the same spelling, irrespective of their pronunciation.


I've thought for a bit and found ...


Bow - A tie on a girls hair, robin hoods choice of weapon, front of boat, lean forward


that's four meanings with only one word!!!


anyone top that?

Set is a big one - it has the most different definitions IIRC (certainly the longest entry in the dictionary)
