Homophones

A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning and spelling, such as “ate”, as having eaten, and “eight”, a number. 

“Homo” means “same” and the term is used in music which is said to be homophonic, or that which uses different tones, as with different homophonic words, simultaneously to create one chordal sound.
