Are they pronounced the same? No! I really am not seeing what angle you are spinning with one.

Quoting MyLittlePwny:

I feel dumb for asking this... WTF is a homonym?

words that are spelled the same but have different meanings

like "I like to read" and "I read a book"

one is pronounced reed and the other red

A better example would be

Elvis left the building. 

as opposed to

Elvis took a left turn at Hollywood and Vine.
