como can mean "I eat" and it can mean "like, how" That is just the way things are. Many English words have multiple meanings, too. A snake can be an animal or a tool used to clean a drain, for example. Riveting can be the act of fastening metal together, or it can mean 'compelling, fascinating."

Thanks, that helps. So basically I just need to pay attention as to the nature of the topic and context of the statement?

yeah, i would agree, those are the only two i can think of i was just having trouble thinking of the "i eat" one since I only ever see or use that one in its specific context xD
