Sexy Birthday Homonyms: capital & Capitol

Pardon me, for this blog post contains sexually explicit examples or content. If you are under the age of 18 or just uncomfortable with sexually explicit material, you may want to check out one of these sites about grammar and writing instead.

Welcome to the Sexy Grammarian’s birthday party! This month, I’m posting a set of easily confused homonyms every weekday. My sexy example sentences guarantee you will never use the wrong word again! Here’s today’s:

Use capital for a city, a letter, or wealth, as in:

What turned her on was capital and all it could buy—that and great pair of tits.

Use the always-capitalized Capitol when you’re talking about the building in the capital city of Washington D.C. as in:

The senator crouched down on the toilet stall floor of the Capitol’s men’s room and fluttered his lashes up at the young intern.

What is a homonym? Generally speaking, homonyms are any words that sound the same but have different meanings. Read more about homonyms, homophones, and homographs on Wikipedia, and check out this exhaustive homonym list.

Come back Monday to learn the difference between sheer & shear. Subscribe to make sure you never miss another Sexy Grammar lesson. Write to me for private lessons via Skype or in person.
