Here’s an interesting competition for you grammar geeks out there: Seekport, European search engine company, has seven iPods up for grabs. To get your mitts on one, you have to go over to the webbie and submit a homograph (that’s words with the exact same spelling but two different meanings: like row: a row your boat, row with your wife). An Apple iPod photo goes to the entrant with most submissions, with an iPod mini going to the runner up. Five iPod shuffles go to lucky winners who have submitted at least one homograph.
The competition is in support of Seekport’s UK specific search engine, which will now ask you to distinguish between homographs when you make a search, thus negating any unnecessary confusion.
