What do we call words that sound (pronunciation) similar but have different spellings?
Just for example :
come - kom
you - u
I've already seen this post but that does not comply with the examples I have shown.
Are there any words like that?

"A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning, and may differ in spelling. The words may be spelled the same, such as rose (flower) and rose (past tense of "rise"), or differently, such as carat, caret, and carrot, or to, two, and too."
