As an avid reader, writer, and teacher, I love words. I love exploring them with my students, finding just the right word for their own writing, and looking at the strangeness that is our language. Here are three "presentations" I found that can make a word-lover slip into a deep, dark crazy.
1) The first two presentations seem to taken from the same source. However I discovered them separately and I think they're more readable seperately, so they have become two different presentations. A more complete version can be found here. In any event, here is the first part:
1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce .
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present .
8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
10) I did not object to the object.
11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row .
13) They were too close to the door to close it.
14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.
15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.
2) I posted this a couple months ago in my "A Look Back At School Through The Eyes of 9gag" post. It seems to be an extension of the first presentation, but here is the second piece:
3) This last presentation is half poem, half torture. I found it originally here.
