** The Latin number six (VI) is sex, resulting in many giggles for beginner Latin students. The closest word meaning sex is probably "coitus", whereas the verb "futuō, futuere" means something along the lines of "to fuck.

* English has plenty of its own examples. For one thing, consider that read and lead rhyme, and read and lead rhyme, but read and lead don't rhyme and neither do read and lead.[[Note]]For non-native speakers, "read" can be pronounced "reed" for the present-tense or "red" for the past tense. "Lead" meanwhile, can refer to the metal (lead) or leadership (leed)[[/note]]

* The Irish language has at least one example too. Critically, "Bhuail mé" means "I Hit/Struck", whereas "Bhuail mé le" means "I met/meet". Gets even worse when you consider mixing up meeting your wife in the evening to [[UnfortunateImplications "hitting" your wife in the evening]].

*** Not really - we kiwis pronounce our "e" like an Australian "i", but we don't pronounce them like each other. So our "sex" sounds like an Aussie "six", but you think we say "six" like "sucks". If you were talking about the share/shear thing, yes, we merge that sound (unless we're posh kiwis). And most of us say pull/pool identically, whereas a someone with a broad Aussie accent will say "pooool" (which sounds to us like "peeewl").


Added DiffLines:

*** As I mention above, it's more that our "e" sounds like an Aussie "i", not that we pronounce the sounds the same. Remember, Aussies (and pretty much any native English speaker other than South Africans) think we say "sucks" for "six".

** There is also "Kama khol yakhol khol le'ekhol bekhol yamot hakhol em bekhlal yakhol khol le'ekhol khol bekhol yamot hakhol?" meaning "How much sand could a pheonix eat on a weekday if a phoenix could eat sand on a weekday?". Although, keep in mind that 'kh' means the hard h sound. So it's the Hebrew equivalent of "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood."
