@ekename,

Ha ha is onomatopoeic for laughter in English. It doesn't sound much like laughter, but there it is.

In Russian ka kachoo is onomatopoeic for laughter, which sounds more like sneezing, but there it is too.

What common word, based solely on it's sound, should mean something else?


With your kind complaisance I beseech you to gainsay the limitation to sounds and broaden the topic to any word that should mean something else, given that's what's happening.

vomitoria--not even close to what it sounds like. It sounds like it ought to be a bathroom when you're sick.

Here's what it is: an inside entrance to a stadium.

Natatorium--sounds like a public place where people can watch childbirth in process. I first saw it in big letters on the outside of a school. I thought wow, that's the new sex education? But, alas, it's real meaning is just an indoor swimming pool.
