English (especially British English) is not spelt phonetically.  All languages have synonyms (words with unrelated spelling and pronunciation but the same meaning) and words with multiple meanings. However English has an exceptional disparity between spelling and pronunciation. Homophones are words with the same pronunciation but different meaning and spelling like mussel and muscle, both From Latin mūsculus (“mussel or muscle”), literally “little mouse”.

Here you have a list of homophones in British English. And this is a homophones quiz.
