Still still

Don’t worry, you’re not seeing double. Or maybe you are - if you get what I mean.

What I mean is, the word ’STILL’ standing on its own, fits the definition of both a homograph: a word that is spelled the same, but has a different meaning (still: continual; remained without change or still: tranquil; quiet; calm - as in, the still of the night), AND a homonym: a word that sounds the same, but has a different meaning (still: continual; remained without change or still: tranquil; quiet; calm - as in, the still of the night).

Hmm, is there an echo in here?

Anyhow, considering what I just said, and if I REMAIN CALM, I think I’ll be able to provide an additional explanation for why I doubled up the word ‘still’ for my webpage header. It’s basically because I was inspired by this formula: double the meanings x double the meanings = 4 fun.

Still with me? Perfect! Still craving some more contemplation on the word ‘still’? Excellent, then check out the results when I paired it with the concept of meditation.
