Multiple Meaning Words

There are some words that have multiple meanings. Due to this, it can be difficult to determine which meaning is being used in a sentence. There are a few steps you can take to analyze which meaning is being used. You can check whether it is being used as a noun or a verb, or another part of speech. This can be a quick determiner and can aid you in moving past these words quickly; however, not all words will be this easy. Sometimes, each meaning of a word can share a part of speech. When this happens, it is best to look at the context of the rest of the sentence and determine which definition would fit the sentence.
