    Homograph, same spelling, different sound, different meaning
    Homophone, different spelling, same sound, different meaning
    Homonym, same spelling, same sound, different meaning.

    Homophones: ewe, yew, you, U

    Heteronyms are a type of homograph. They are words that are spelled the same but differ in meaning and pronunciation. All heteronyms are also homographs, but not all homographs are heteronyms. Many heteronyms are similar in meaning (especially a related noun and verb are spelled the same but pronounced differently), while others are wholly unrelated.
