Word Study Station #3 Before beginning, get Station #3 Worksheet from Folder A. …then click to proceed to the next slide. Allen May 2012
Read the following and then think about your answer… A Shetland Pony walked into a McDonalds and waited in line to place his order. When his turn finally came, he said (in a soft raspy voice), “I’ll have the Hamburger Happy Meal with a Coke please.” The woman behind the counter frowned and replied, “Sir, you’ll have to speak up. I can’t hear you.” The pony looked at her and repeated (same soft raspy voice), “I’ll have the Hamburger Happy Meal with a Coke please.” The woman frowned again, looked rather aggravated and said sharply, “Sir, I still can’t hear you. There are lots of people waiting in line. You’ll have to speak up or leave the restaurant.” The pony smiled understandingly and replied (same soft raspy voice), “I’m sorry. You’ve got to excuse me. I’m just a little hoarse.” Why is this joke funny?
What do you call two words that sound the same, but have different meanings? Homonyms! Or is it Homophones? Maybe Homographs? Anyone?
Consider how we learned to make meaning through defining root words and affixes… This is a perfect example… homo– (prefix…) means same nym (root word) means name phone (root word) means sound graph (root word) means writing…
Consider how we learned to make meaning through defining root words and affixes… Combine them and you come up with very close translations that describe their actual function… Homo + Nym = Homonym = Same Name Homo + Phone = Homophone = Same Sound Homo + Graph = Homograph = Same Writing
