Some new doubles?





ocalhoun
Probably a lot of you have seen various lists going around highlighting certain words in the english language, things like "The dove dove down from the tree."

They're all featuring two words that are spelled exactly the same, but have completely different meanings and are pronounced differently.
("Couldn't bear to be next to the bear" wouldn't count: they're both pronounced the same. "A hoarse horse" wouldn't count, since they're spelled differently. "Read this book!" "No, I already read it." wouldn't count: they're both different tenses of the same word.)

Over the course of reading and writing, I think I may have discovered a few new ones that aren't on most lists:

She shed a tear about the tear in her dress.
He was difficult to console when his console broke.
She's not close enough to close the door.
Are you content with the content of this post?

Are these really new ones, or am I just reinventing the wheel... and are there any more you can think of?
