Words that have the same sound but are spelled differently and have different meanings are known as homonyms. The English language is filled with these kinds of words.
For example, let’s look at the following two sentences:
“He went with Jim.”
“He went to the gym.”
“Jim” and “gym” sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings. “Jim” is the proper name of a person. “Gym” is the common name of a place you can go to in order to work out or play a sport.
