  •  I suspect that English has a lot of homonyms, (3+ / 0-)

    more than most languages, because of the multiple ancestor languages that went into the development of English.  Anglish, Saxon, Old German, Norse, Latin, Norman French, it's all in there.  This means that there are multiple ways to spell many sounds.  What I've found amusing is the many trios of homonyms - I've found 20 so far.  There is even one quad of them; right/rite/wright/write.  

    Are there any homnyms at all in Romanian?
