Can this word be interpreted two ways?

1: the state of being a homeowner.
2: home ownership (the ownership of a home / homes).
I have made a new entry for home ownership, and had second thoughts afterwards. Donnanz (talk) 14:26, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Homeownership is definitely attested. Home ownership looks dodgy though. WT:COALMINE says "Unidiomatic terms made up of multiple words to officially meet WT:CFI when significantly more common than a single word spelling that already meets CFI". Google Books Ngram has it as about twice as common. That's probably "significantly more common". I doubt an rfd is merited. Anyway I struck homeownership as nominated by mistake.

It's hard to know there to put cases like this. Anyway I have added usage notes to both entries, assuming they have different meanings. Donnanz (talk) 13:08, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
