At our pharmacy, we are required to wave at the pharmacist if we want to waive consultation about the prescription.

For the most part, these two words can be used interchangeably.
quote:
From the dictionary app on my Mac:

ORIGIN

late Middle English (in the sense ‘assure someone of something’): alteration of ensure.
usage: There is considerable overlap between the meaning and use of insure and ensure. In both US and British English, the primary meaning of insure is the commercial sense of providing financial compensation in the event of damage to property; ensure is not used at all in this sense. For the more general senses, ensure is more likely to be used, but insure and ensure are often interchangeable, particularly in US English: bail is posted to insure that the defendant appears for trial | the system is run to ensure that a good quality of service is maintained.

I think the gender-normative newspeak is "gayphones," "cis-gayphones," and "trans-gayphones" which are not to be confused with the anti-gender-normative anti-newspeak word "gaydar."

Not really a homophone, but a sound-alike, it irks (and amuses) me to see ads in the classifieds for a Chevy with a "12 volt rear". That's a problem with outsourcing the call-takers for the ads.

There is some overlap, all right, but I question the "for the most part" part.
