+ In all human languages, there are certain words that have the same spelling but different meanings and different origins (etymologies). Such words, known as '''homonyms''', are handled by the word-level attributes: "type" and "meaning". For example, the word "bank" in English: (a) a grassy bank (noun),
+ (b) bank (verb) an aircraft (to tilt), (c) borrow from the bank (noun) and (d) bank (verb) the money.

  The following Word- Level Markups can be used for '''handling Personal Names''' in various conventions.  This metadata is also useful in sorting various personal names.
