The way I'm taking it, no.


It sounds pretty impossible for an object, which is described to be a noun, to also be another part of speech at the same time; but there are circumstances where a word could mean two different things, if that's what you're thinking about it.

For example, the word "book" can be both a verb and a noun.

Verb: We booked the flight for tomorrow.
Noun: I put the book back on the shelf.
