Interlingual homography

Ho­mo­graphs are words of iden­tical ap­pea­rance but of dif­fe­rent mea­ning and ety­mo­lo­gy. Bear, the verb, and bear, the ani­mal, are examples of English ho­mo­graphs, whi­le kuusi, the num­ber six, and kuusi, the spruce, are of­ten-ci­ted Fin­nish ones. The words lis­ted be­low are ho­mo­graphs ac­ross the­se two lan­gua­ges. The trans­la­tions here are mi­ni­mal; many of the words have ot­her mea­nings in one or both lan­gua­ges, which the Wik­tio­na­ry ar­ticles lin­ked to will de­tail.
