    words with more then one meanings

    LOBBY

    is a modernish edition to the English American language and has for me a political hint to it.
    it is also a verb /a place /and a type of food(thick stew).
    therefore I find it limiting in its usage.
    notice the word THICK to describe a stew.
    is that a hint of sarcasm denoting the word lobby?
    then it is a corridor too.
    corridor usually is smaller than a hall, usually dark and does not evoke a sense of space as oppose to hall.

    can you think of other words that take on the same role?
