Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 2, Day 1

Post by rjaguar3 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 8:33 am

There is a replacement question for the R1D6 10-pointer in Law in the News in this thread.

We'll have a winner for Round 1 soon.

I'm a bit under the weather, but here we go with R2D1. Thanks to Woof for today's guest category.

HETERONYMS
By Woof. Heteronyms are two (or more) words with the same spelling, but different meanings and pronunciations. Each correct answer is a single word that fits each part of the definition I supply

2: A fish that is also a musical instrument

4: To leave someone or a particularly inhospitable place

6: As an adjective, within reason; as a verb, to preside over

8: As an adjective, to be false or unsound; as a noun, to be incapacitated

10: As an adjective, it means open; as a noun, it means e.g. God's love

NON-ENGLISH POETRY

3: Two of this country's greatest poets, Li Bai and Du Fu, lived during the Tang dynasty.

6: A Basho poem in this form translates as: "Even in Kyoto / hearing the cuckoo's cry / I long for Kyoto."

9: The qasidah is an Arabic version of this poetic form exemplified in English by Keats poems "on melancholy" and "to a Nightingale".

12: Twelve books and 9,896 lines of hexameter make up this Roman poet's Aeneid.

15: He wrote 20 Love Poems and a Song of Despair in Spanish.
