  • Rathony, good catch, I find the other post quite helpful in answering this one. I marked it as answered and as duplicate. – jian May 29 '16 at 20:31

Try homophone, defined by Merriam Webster as

A word (one of two or more) that is pronounced like another word but is different in meaning, origin, or spelling.

Full definition is

One of two or more words pronounced alike but different in meaning or derivation or spelling (as the words to, too, and two)

A character or group of characters pronounced the same as another character or group

  • Oh, I thought homophones had to be only a single words, so it can be two as well right? – jian May 28 '16 at 20:02
  • @jian Yes, as defined by the dictionary and accepted colloquially. – vickyace May 28 '16 at 20:04
  • @jian Homophones are used for same pronunciation but different spelling or meaning. – vickyace May 28 '16 at 20:05
