Boiling Polysemy

In the sentences

I boil water
I boil the kettle
I boil an egg
The kettle boils water
The kettle boils
Water boils

the word "boil" means something different each time. I'm thinking of having
more than one word for boil in Khangaþyagon, and having a bit of fun with
which sense I assign to each one.
