Heteronyms by Terry Jackman

“Zombies eat people”, or is that “Zombies, eat people”?

Punctuation is bad enough, but the words….

1 The bandage was wound around the wound.

2 The farm was used to produce several varieties of produce.

3 The rubbish tip was so full they had to refuse any more refuse.

4 We have to polish the Polish furniture.

5 The soldier decided to desert with his dessert out of the desert so he deserved his just desserts.

6 Since there was no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the group present.

7 A bass had been painted on the head of the bass drum.

8 When shot at, the dove dove for the bushes.

9 I do not object to the object.

10 The invalid’s insurance was deemed invalid .

11 There was an almighty row among the oarsmen about how to row.

12 They were too close to the door to close it.

See what I mean?

Terry Jackman began writing nonfiction, more by accident than design, before eventually tackling fiction. These days she runs the BSFA Orbit groups and edits-for-hire between writing and the day job. She also runs the occasional convention workshop, and is strange enough that she actually enjoys moderating panels.
