Sexy Birthday Homonyms: reek & wreak

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.

The Sexy Grammarian’s sexy homonyms birthday party winds down this week with my sexiest example sentences yet:

The verb reek is to smell strongly, as in:

You reek of sex.

The verb wreak is to carry out or execute one’s ill will upon another, as in:

Watch out, or your attraction will wreak disaster on your will power.

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 tomorrow my last day of homonyms. I’ll celebrate 8 years with ate & eightSubscribe to make sure you never miss another Sexy Grammar lesson. Write to me for private lessons via Skype or in person.
