Language Games

The English language is confusing enough because it is not a gender inflected language. Worse still, it has various words that can be nouns and verbs or that can be used in entirely different ways with the same spelling. For example,

Be still. I still have a still in the backyard.
Or While I row there’s a row in the third row.
Or Love, I love the love.

So here is your challenge for today—- what English words can you come up with that can mean three different things and be used all three ways in a sentence or two. Are there any English words which can be used four different ways? Inquiring Minds want to know.
