    No. Okay. So basically if you were to say a pun out loud, you'd put more emphasis on one word. In the first example, you'd say "An English teacher is like a judge in that she hands out long SENTENCES" (hold for laughter). Sentences are used by both judges and typing sentences. Second example, "A man's home in his castle, in a MANOR of speaking." Manor/Manner are separate words that both tie into the sentence. So Manor and Sentences would be your answers
