Same words used as a verb and noun...

Recommended Posts

I need a bait to go fishing so I can bait the hook.

(ok I'll be good and let y'all have some fun, lol. I just love words).

One more time (oh man, I can't resist):

Susie bought a new dress for her baby so she can dress her.

Harry bought a stop watch so he'll know when to stop running. (Oopps! the first "stop" was an adjective. So sorry). So now I must continue. So let's see...ummm

So Harry did stop running because his watch told him to stop running. (hmmm, that "stop" sounded more like two verbs to me so now I must continue again).


The cops told the couple they can't drive anymore because it was obvious they don't know how to drive.

THERE! LOL. :) :)

You lead the way.Lead is a metal.


The couple were dining out.It took an hour to couple the train cars together.


umm, Randall, your examples are really very good, but is it possible to put the noun and verb in one sentence? I mean it's really no big deal actually, just asking. Thanks.

It took a couple of hours to couple a couple of train cars together.

You can lead the way wearing a lead suit.

A large can can hold all that stuff.

Can you can a can? Inspired by Randall... :lol:

I the southern USA we always said, "We eat what we can and what we can't eat, we can."

If it takes a couple of hours to couple a couple of train cars togather there must be something wrong with the coupling. It should take just a couple of minutes.

That lead suit sounds like it would be heavy.
