    WIND:  as in weather    WIND:  as a pitcher will wind up and throw the pitch
     Those words are spelled the same,  but pronounced differently as well as having different meanings.  

    The word WELL can mean a healthy state of being, an interjectory word (Well, how about that), or a well that is dug in search of water, oil, or some other resource. 
    BRAND can be a commercial name on a package or an identification burned onto an animal's hide.  
    HORSE can be a beautiful animal or a simple game played with a basketball.
    FIRE can be a huge mass of burning matter or to dismiss an employee from his job. 
    ICE can be frozen liquid (usually water) or the act of putting frosting on a cake. 
    BALLOON can be a piece of inflated mylar or the state of becoming inflated (as in weight)
    FILE can be something used to smooth fingernails or a folder containing relevant and connected information about someone or thing.
    HOSE can be a tube from which water is directed from a faucet or stockings.
    SHOCK can be an electrical charge passing into a person or a state of extreme surprise or trauma. 

    See how there are all kinds of meanings to very simple words.
    Your question has too many answers for me!

    When I translated the scholar's English, I thought the question was about words that are spelled the same but have different meanings.
