French homonyms

We know that one of the most difficult aspects of French is its pronunciation. But aren’t homonyms the best? One pronunciation and bam! you get three different words at once :rofl:.

Do you know other ones?

Oh man when I see this I’m glad French is my mother tongue… :rofl:
I have a few others in mind :

Le père :bearded_person:
La paire :mans_shoe::mans_shoe:

Le vert :green_circle:
Le verre :tumbler_glass:
Le vers :wavy_dash:
Vers :arrow_right:

When I was young I made a sentence with all the “ver” homonyms : un ver (worm) en vair (kind of fur) va vers (towards) un verre (glass - object) en verre (glass - matter) vert (green) vers (around) 5 heures.

Un ver en vair va vers un verre en verre vert vers 5 heures :smile:

ahahah french is indeed a strange language pronunciation-wise :see_no_evil:. I’ve got one: Maître, mètre, mettre (= master, metre, to put)

Une mûre mûre murmure au mur.

A ripe blackberry murmures to the wall. :smiley:
