cube is correct by saying homonyms

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 21 2009 6:20 PM EDT

homonyms are a subset of homophones that are spelled alike, if i recall correctly. but the homophone is for words that have different spellings but sound alike.

Actually dudemus is correct with homophones. Homonyms are words like right and right. The first right meaning correct, and the second meaning not left.
