Pete Bleackley asked:

> Anyone got any interesting homophones in their languages?

Jameld has quite a few. Some of my favourites:

aa: river / had
bars: naked, bare / perch (fish)
ets̄: yet / bum, bottom
nimen: name / to steal
skor: bark (of tree) / shaved
star: stand (noun) / starling
tor: dung / tore, split
woh: fury, rage / wanted

Quite a few came about when I retrofitted strong verbs into Jameld in 2001, including four of the examples above.
