The name for a sentence that uses a word that can be a noun or a verb both ways: “We swing on the swing”

We swing on the swing.
Glue( to use glue) with Glue.
Juice (to squeeze to make juice) to make juice.

What is the name for these kind of sentences that the noun and verb are the same?


I don’t know whether it’s what you are looking for, but they are examples of tautology – saying the same thing twice in different ways – which is an error. If you refer to glueing something, it’s superfluous to add ‘with glue’; to juice something is, by definition, ‘to obtain juice’.
