Hint:

river bank (3)in a mirror

ANSWER: river bank.

 

riverbank - Copy

The key analogy words have the same look, and the same sound, but different meanings.

How interesting they are!  The BANK where we save money is compared to the BANK or

edge of the river.  The BAT in the cave is compared to the BAT used to hit the baseball.

That’s homonyms!

What homonyms would you choose to write and illustrate an analogy?
