If by written the same way you mean not broken into syllables, the answer is yes. There is an explanation in this particular book section, because Cleopatra is musing about her condition--and the two words--so in this case whoever reads it--and it's a good book--would know, but seeing the words in such close proximity made me wonder about the situation and about homonyms in isolation, like the examples you all gave me about read and read and lead and lead. Thank you all who have replied. Robert's explanation makes the most sense to me, since it would pronounce isolated homonyms such as read correctly. The modern world of technology is amazing!!
