ack-ack (also see: "Mars Attacks") Comment 1 of 1

flak - Fliegerabwehrkanone (anti-aircraft fire, like ack-ack), but figuratively meaning to pelt someone's pelt with hostile criticism. (As the Brits say it nicely, to give one stick).  

a flack - publicity agent.

to flack - promote, as in a product.

some others...

His abusive corporal punishment, this time, for using the wrong compiler switch, involved a switch, which was a quite a switch.

No flying bugs in my right, he said, but when he opened his left, four left and there were three left.

The lazy auto mechanic propped up the stick with a stick but it didn't stick, so he was given stick.

In Mandarin,  there is this and this for "shi" (explained) and this for "ma".
