Apologies for the extremely vague title but considering I don't even know how to properly phrase what I'm trying to ask, I had no idea how else to describe it.
Basically I am familiar with homographs and homophones (and homonyms), but there is a different type of "word play" or "spelling play" I've seen come up as of recently that I'm trying to find out if there is a name for. Or if one for it simply just doesn't exist.
There's a few examples I could list, but the best one I could think of is
kaiyote. This is obviously a play on the real word,
coyote. However, it's not considered a homograph or homophone because the word
kaiyote in itself doesn't have any meaning - it's just a word spelled to make it sound like the actual real word
Could anyone tell me if there is any term for this type of practice, or is there not one?
