homonyms are normally defined as words sharing the same spelling and sound but having different meanings (e.g., "tire" as on a car, and "tire" as to lose energy). Whereas, homophones are words that are spelled differently but sound the same (such as "to, two, too").
The reason I happen to know this is that I recently corrected Scott Adams' (Dilbert cartoonist) use of the word "reigns" when he meant "reins" (homophonic, not homonymic).
