*: I will make mention of thy righteousness.
*: And sleep in dull, cold marble, where no mention / Of me more must be heard of.
*: I can illustrate this by mentioning the word lead. Now you have no way of knowing for sure which meaning I have in mind until I give it some context by using it in a sentence.
