Homonyms, Homophones, Homographs and More — Illustrated
I created this diagram for my own use. I constantly confuse wordy terms like homophone, homonym, homograph, heteronym, and heterograph and needed a visual way to keep the relationships straight. But I play well and get along with others, so I decided to share.
I hope you find use for it. Feel free to share it, too.

Only someone who loves words would invent a diagram like this. Thank you for organizing a set of confusing terms!
Guilty. Glad you like it.
So doesn’t address also fall into homonyms (what is the address, he will give an address after lunch)
And route and rout can go into the heterograph category.
Oh my, confusing and yet kind of fun…yeah, I’m weird!
Very observant. You are correct about “address.” It is also a homonym. Words can be in multiple categories.
