Student or Learner
, if any, words that share the same pronounciation but have different spellings and/or unrelated meanings.
Thanks in advance

But that's not quite what I'm looking for and now I'm not sure if there's such a thing in English. In Chinese, a number of different characters have (or has?) the same pronounciation but each character (or word) has its own independent meaning. I have to explain that to people who are interested in learning Chinese. Is there a word of these kind of words in English? so I don't have to explain the whole sha-bang (spelling?)
Do you mean something like Their and There? If so I am sure there are loads. Perhaps between us we can come up with them. Will have a think and come back unless anyone else wants to help?

Thank you guys.
If you ever have a question about Chinese langauge, just give me a holler.
Near There I am fine.
Sorry I thought you were actually looking for the words that sound the same but have different meanings.That maybe useful to some other, less advanced,students. I havn't come across the word homophones but let us know if that is correct.
Can you come up with other homophonic words?
