1 Answer 1


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 Yes, as defined by the dictionary and accepted colloquially.
