Why is race a homonym? As in two different words that sound the same. What do ethnic origin and sprinting have in common? Actually is that a homophone? It is I think. Its both I Wikipedia-ed it. Whatever, it is another baffling instance of the English language being just plain odd. It did give rise to Terry Pratchett’s wonderful insult “he was so wrong he got disqualified from the human race for pushing”.
Also, that raises the question; are premature babies guilty of a false start?
