Linguistic overture

It's very puzzling, for me atleast, to see two words describing the same action, having different connotations but the same letters just rearranged.
I need not explain, but see the difference between - Veto and Vote

@Sense - Thanks for the kind comment. I don't usually go near to anything smelling poetry. I suck at understanding poetry. I am still struggling with JAlfred Prufrock ...
@cynic - Its a part time obsession ... suggest you check out other linguistic overture posts as well ...
