Three Parts of Speech Game.

Post by Garmar on Mon Mar 23, 2009 7:06 pm

The way this works is to find a word that is spelled the same, but acts as at least three different parts of speech. The twist is to use them all properly in one sentence.

An example.

Don't forget to plane the wing of the plane on a plane surface.

Verb.
Noun.
Adjective.

Extra points if you properly construct a sentence with more than three.

Be creative and have fun! smiling

Jack hoped into his car and rode on his smooth road; in the mean time watched some people who rowed across the lake.

This is tricky... it's going to take me a while to come up with a word and a sentence. scratch

(Hopefully it's correct)

Actually...I meant one word, spelled the same, but used as at least three parts of speech. I like what you've done there though.

If you look at my example, I used the word plane three times, eachas a different part of speech.

Yep! It's pretty difficult to find them. I like what you did though. You should start a thread for using a word that sounds the same, but has at least Three different spellings. Wink
