Word of the Day: Paronomasia

Since receiving a Word A Day Calendar, I’ve decided to write a short something including my new word each day.

paronomasia

noun, Rhetoric.

1.  the use of a word in different senses or the use of words similar in sound to achieve a specific effect, as humor or a dual meaning; punning.

2.  a pun

Paronomasia seems like a word to be used to describe Fox Mulder, but it fact it describes the entertaining play on words the creators of the XFiles inserted by having an agent Miller.   I tried with this one, I really did!
