Words that sound alike, but are spelled differently?
I know antonym means opposite, synonym means similar. What's the term for words that sound alike, but are spelled differently and have entirely different meanings? Example: 'Breaks' and 'Brakes'???

I would prefer heteronym rather than use homonym as a subcategory of homonym. (It's rather confusing.)
What do you think?
I'll add it to the Glossary just as soon as I've sorted out the files on my computer.
Homophone vs Homonym
I always thought that homophones are words with different meanings that sound the same, but are spelt differently and homonyms are words with different meanings that sound different, but are spelt the same.
So a homophone would be - There was a mail from a male.
And a homonym would be - The bandage was wound around the wound.
PS You can practice your homophones here.
Re: Homophone vs Homonym
Yes, but homonym is also the name for the larger category. Thus, all homophones are homonyms, but not all homonyms are homophones. If you use homonym to talk about a subcategory of homonyms you create unnecessary confusion. After all, both homophones and homonyms are homonyms. That confusion is unnecessary because you can call that subcategory heteronyms, and that word is already in use.
