Category:English words with multiple etymologies
This category includes English homographs, i.e. English words which comprise senses with distinct derivations, even if these senses ultimately stem from the same roots. It should not include words whose meanings have shifted or been extended in the course of their use as English words, as this would include practically all English words.
Pages are not to be categorised here if their English section contains one part of speech only and none of the words is in its "basic" form (singular for nouns, infinitive for verbs, positive for adjectives and adverbs). Consequently, include crus but not gums.
