Computer language

What are homonyms? How many can you find in this dialogue about computers/fruit?


  1. LOL! This is great! Thank you! :)

  2. This is extremely funny, it’s like I seen my grandma in a phone shop. :D

    Homonyms are two words spelled alike but they have different meanings. In this video I found a lot of these.
    E.g. blackberry and BlackBerry >^.^< this is funny because the fruit is frozen but it can mean also that the phone is frozen.
    For me the funniest thing was when they talked about the boys birthday :D poor guy he only wants a new phone and what he all get is a fruit :D but the grandpa has right about this, because those things are just healthy.
    I found around 15 homonyms.

  3. LOL...I think it's one of the funniest things i've ever saw.It completely amused me:D
    The short definition of hononyms is that they are two or more words that have the same sound or spelling but differ in meaning.E.g:Bear (animal) and bear (carry)
    :skip (to jump) and skip (to miss out)
    :miss (unmarried woman) and miss (to overlook)
    In our text i found some homonyms like:
    -mouse(animal/pointing device)
    -window(in a room/framework/system)
    -date(fruit/meeting with someone)
    -booting(loading an operation/hit with the leg something)
    -apple(fruit/multinational corporation in electronics)
    And also:application,dongle,to froze,spot,trash

  4. Hi, my name is Cuesdeanu Mircea Bogdan and first of all I laugh my ass off,the video was that good, a homonym is, in the strict sense, one of a group of words that share the same spelling and the same pronunciation but have different meaning.
    Here are some homonyms witch I found: blackberry(if you could only hear without video you would say they are talking about a phone (BlackBerry) but they're actually talking about the fuit:)), the fuit was frozen but the phone could also be frozen, about the orange is also they are fruit or they could be also cellphones (Orange) , apple is also a name of fruit or could refer for a wide range of products(Apple -Iphone's,IMac's and so on), dongle can also refer to one man's genital's or in tech could be a security key or a laptop Ethernet card adapter,booting it could refer to actually hit the item with the boot or in tech to start the application, crashed is also a homonym it could refer to actual trash(garbage) or the main system files to be corrupted or missing, the last one is the funniest with the eggbox 3.60 witch sound very similar to the console xbox 360.
