Why the English language is so hard to learn:

Bandages are wound around the wound.

Farms are used to produce produce.

Landfills were so full that they had to refuse more refuse.

Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.

I did not object to the object.

When shot at the dove dove into the bushes.

The insurance was invalid for an invalid.

There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

They were to close to the door to close it.

The buck does funny things when does are present.

The wind was too strong to wind in the sail.

Any more?
