How are they called and where can I find them?
 
Dear friends, do you know how words are called that have the similar form in noun and verb, but different syllables are stressed - impact - to impact... I just want to find a list of them to practice with the students, but cannot remember whether ther s a special term for them

at least we were taught so in Russian univesrities, but Ive googled and found out that native speakers call them HOMOGRAPHS!!!
