It is a verb, "but "sounds" is incorrect. It should be "sound" because of the subject "words".
Student or Learner
It is difficult for me to decide whether the word sound is a verb. So help please.Here we have another perfect example of a confusing set of English homophones, words that sound exactly the same when pronounced but have different spellings and meanings. Since these words sounds the same when spoken, people sometimes get confused when they begin to write them on paper. It also doesn’t help that two of them are separated by just one single letter.

Is it grammatical to say 'these word sounds are the same' where 'sounds' is a noun?
