homonym

Term (also equivocation) for the property of a word to be ambiguous. An example is "dew", which is a morning precipitation, a rope or the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet. For grape varieties, similar varieties are sometimes grouped together under one name (homonym), although it is genotypisch are independent grape varieties. Examples are particularly significant Clevner, with which numerous largely unrelated grape varieties are named, and above all Malvasia with well over 50 varieties with this name component. Also due to the previously widespread custom of planting different varieties in the vineyard ( Mixed sentence ) common names were very common. This is in contrast to the homonym synonym with different names for the same term. However, there are also grape variety names that are used for several grape varieties due to a common property. An example of Italy is Pagadebit ("Debtor") for grape varieties with high yields.
