Homologous means having the same evolutionary origin, but sometimes having different functions, an example is that the wing of a bat and a paddle of a whale are homologous.
Does Meaning Evolve?
The anterior appendages of bats and whales make this clear; they are both locomotory and therefore have the same function of locomotion, but one is used in ﬂight and the other in swimming and in that sense they have different functions.
Does Meaning Evolve?
Examples of analogous words such as these can always be argued to differ in nuance; but the difference is slight and appears to be less that the difference between the precise functions of standard biological analogues such as the functions of ﬁns of ﬁshes and the paddles of whales.
