Different words that have the same meaning are synonyms. Words that are opposites are called antonyms. Words that sound the same but don't have the same meaning are homonyms or homophones.

The reverse (words spelled the same but with different meanings) would be true homonyms if they sound the same (bat = baseball or flying mammal), or simply homographs if they have different sounds (lead = being ahead or the heavy element).Words spelled differently that mean about the same are synonyms.


Words that are spelled the same but pronounced differently are HOMOGRAPHS (a type of HOMONYM).
