4: Homonyms, Homophones, Homographs


Search Engine Optimization (SEO), (SERP), (NLP), Homonyms, Homophones, Homographs

lexical, syntactical, phonological, grammatical, punctuational ambiguity

The number of linguistic search queries mediated on a daily basis are innumerable, and keywords, sentences, phrases, misspellings and keyboard mishaps can blur the syntax of search results. The ambiguous nature of keyword semantics and it’s textual context are paramount focus in linguistic capitalism, keyword commodity, user intention, query context and search engine optimization (SEO). Let’s explore the most pervasive forms of ambiguity in semantics; homonyms, homophones and homographs; (excluding heteronyms and heterographs subsets).

Homonyms are monosyllabic words; “homo,” means “same,” and “onym,” means “name.” Hence words like “bark,” are homonyms, because of same spelling and pronunciation; “bark,” as the noun, “the protective outer sheath of a tree trunk,” and as the verb, “dog emitting sound;” the meanings are predicated on grammatical syntax….There’s no morphological or phonological distinctions with homonymic lexemes, and the disparity between the noun, verb or adjective semantics becomes salient in their syntax. Homonym and polysemy are identical in spelling and pronunciations, with exceptions to polysemous meanings extend beyond homonyms double interpretations.

Homophones; “homo” means “same,” and the root “phone,” means sound; words like “waste,” and “waist,” are spelled differently with the same pronunciation. “Waste,” as a verb that “expend what’s useless or lacking purpose,” and “waist,” as “part of the human anatomy.” Homophones are unequivocal because of their orthographic distinctions; however, those distinctions become implicit when a non-English speaker keyword search words and phrases based on pronunciations, and not accounting for linguistic orthography. Homophones are often used as misdirection in humor and political satire…

Homographs; “homo,” means “same,” and “graph,” means “write;” homographs are spelled identical but may or may not have the same pronunciation; meaning, homographs may also be homonyms depending on their syntax. Prime example is; “wind,” as the noun, “air movement,” and the verb “twist and turn.” Wind as a “verb,” in regards to twisting and turning has a different pronunciation, it’s where the “i,” is enunciated with the “y,” sound in “wind,” and this is grammatically determined by syntax or contextual usage.

Now that we’ve segmented lexemes into ambiguous categories, let’s explore this paper that was published by an accredited institution; it states that there’s three types of ambiguity; lexical, syntactic and semantic; actually, there’s over six; lexical, syntactical or structural, semantical, grammatical, punctuational and phonological.

Lexical ambiguity, syntactical ambiguity and semantic ambiguity are pervasive in news headlines, politics, humor and any area that’s contingent on the exchange and communication of language. However, phonological ambiguity derives from intonational ambiguity attributed to a lexical or syntactical sentence; an example is a declining inflection while uttering the word “no;” a rhetoric that insinuates “tell me more,” “condescends,” or “induces curiosity,” during a dialogue that produces shock value. The phonological ambiguity of the word “no,” can induce polysemic interpretations, and this ambiguity is a result of the suprasegmental features in phonology associated with cadence, modulation, intonation and inflection.

Punctuational ambiguity is when an unequivocal syntactical sentence becomes ambiguous when punctuational rules are implemented. Primary example; “a woman without her man is nothing;” and “a woman without her, man is nothing.” A monosemous sentence becomes ambiguous when commas are introduced. Grammatical ambiguity refers to the discordant functions of a verb conducing ambiguity in a syntactical sentence; example, “I see her duck;” to “lower her head,” or “a waterbird.” This is grammatical ambiguity where the present tense replaced the past tense inducing a grammatically incorrect syntax, thus inducing the punctuational ambiguity.

“Knight” and “Night” are homophones, not homonyms; homonyms have identical spelling and pronunciation with mutually exclusive meanings; generally it’s a contrast between a noun and a verb or adjective. Example “bark;” dogs bark, and tree bark. Homophones are words that are pronounced identical but spelled differently. These distinctions are imperative if you’re publishing a paper on Google’s algorithm, morphological ambiguity, polysemous and other semantical ambiguous attributes that affects the search engines performance, in terms of query and context accuracy; ambiguous distinctions are paramount…..
