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.

Keeping these words straight is tough. Sometimes there’s a trick. Other times, you just have to learn the difference. I will periodically talk about these troublesome, spell checker-defying homophones to help you get them down.
Which of these cause you trouble?
