Oronyms

What is an oronym?

Per Wiktionary, an oronym is a word or phrase that sounds the same as another word or phrase, such as "I scream" / "ice cream", "that's tough" / "that stuff", and "four candles" / "fork handles".

Types of oronyms include Mondegreens (misheard phrases, such as song lyrics), eggcorns (similar sounding words or phrases, that still sound plausibly related - such as acorns vs eggcorns), and malapropisms (nonsensical words or phrases that sound similar). They might remind you of a game of MAD GABĀ®.
