The homographs and homonyms of English make our language fun.
I am a word, and if you see me, friends around me being none,
Potentially your understanding's something that I might impair.
You may just be inclined to think I am a movement of the air.

And if you hear my name pronounced, you could believe someone complained;
But when you see my yesterday, it's possible you'll think of pain.
However, I am none of those; my meaning is to turn or twist.
So do you know my name? It shouldn't take a rocket scientist!
