Homographs are words with the same spelling but having more than one meaning. Homographs may be pronounced the same (homonyms), or they may be pronounced differently (heteronyms, also known as heterophones).
Some homographs are nouns or adjectives when the accent is on the first syllable, and verbs when it is on the second. When the prefix “re-” is added to a monosyllabic word, the word gains currency both as a noun and as a verb.
