What did the original question actually need--a list of words that sound
like others, or (more likely) a list of words that have some meaning you
would prefer not to raise in the reader's mind? Like when you write
about geology you have to watch out for the schist, because some people
think it's not gneiss.

I'm always watching for wrong words that are correctly spelled, such as,
"Mumbletown Pubic Library."
