Siminyms, or RHYMES GONE WRONG

Siminyms…
This term [coined by me] refers to sets of words that don’t quite
rhyme.  They might be called “rhymes gone wrong.”
What possible  good are they to anyone?  I’m open to [civil] suggestions.. .
-U.R.K.
Comments
How about calling them “Words easily confused by the hard of hearing?”
-Rick Shaw
With all due respect (har har) these already have a name: homophones.
-Hy Krymes
Hi, Hy   wordplay2 looked into this and ruled that homophones are exact rhymes.
U.R.K.
Bravo W.R.K.!
-Missy D’Meeners
I’d just call them “words commonly mispelled.”
-Jack Hoff
