The Same Words That Mean Differently

September 16, 2010

While I was surfing the net, looking for some online opportunities, I accidentally encountered the word bullion. At first, I thought that it was some kind of a style or way of sewing. This is so because I remembered when I was in high school and taking my home making class as one of the elective subjects, our teacher taught us how to cook, embroider and sew, among others. We do some blanket stitch, cross stitch, bullion stitch and other stitching ways. So when I saw the word online, that was the first thing that crossed my mind.

But then, I later found out that the word bullion, which I encountered online refers to a different thing. When I searched or googled it, to be sure, I found that bullion means “a gold or silver considered as so much metal; specifically : uncoined gold or silver in bars or ingots”. Now I know…lol
