Although both spelling and meaning are different, words that are the same in pronunciation, that is, in pronunciation, are called “homonyms“. Homonymous words are divided into two in terms of meaning and articulation.

Homographs are words that are spelled the same and have different meanings. As an example of these words, we can give the word “lead”. The word “lead” means both “bullet” and “leadership”. Let’s give a few more examples:

  • Address
  • Band
  • Bat
  • Match
  • Mean
  • Right
  • Ring

Homophones are the case of homophony. Although these words have different meanings and are spelled differently, they are pronounced the same way.

  • Ware – wear – where
  • Bear – bare

As can be easily seen in the examples given above, although their pronunciation, that is, their pronunciation, is the same, the meanings and spellings of these words are completely different.
