Am i using homonym correctly in this sentence, and is the sentence grammatically correct? "Even the word right, meaning correct, is a homonym, or a words that are spelled and pronounced the same, but have different meanings, is a homonym for right, as in right-handed."

    Yes, it is used correctly. No, the grammar is not correct. a words that are? and you have a very run-on sentence there don't be stingy, use another period... or two

    Try this. Keep it simple, I always say. "The words right, meaning correct, and right, as in right-handed, are homonyms. Homonyms are words that are spelled and pronounced the same, but with different meanings."

    That's a nice rewrite. Take a look at what she's done, so that you can incorporate similar strategies in your own work.

    You're a fine writer. I've noticed this before. (Though we're teetering at the edge of veering off-topic, and we seem to have lost our student . . .) With any luck, though, he's seen the responses.
