I've just finished a 9.5 month hitchhiking trip around Asia, learning bits of the languages on the road as needed.

I'm now back home between trips.

comment Is there a term for words that share the same kana spelling?
@senshin: Sorry it wasn't long vowels after all, but -er endings: ブラウザ or ブラウザー? Words borrowed from English which end with -er - For the mute vowels see here: What are the rules regarding “mute vowels” (“u” after “s” and “i” after “sh”)?

By the way "share same kana spelling" just means "have the same pronunciation" with caveats for the areas where Japanese spelling is not perfectly phonetic, such as pitch accent differences, mute vowels, unpredictable rendaku, and the one I've learned about the most recently, the varying spelling and pronunciation of final long vowels in words borrowed from foreign languages, or at least from English.

You're looking for the word homonym, which is less rigidly defined than either homograph or homophone so works for all the jobs the more specific terms don't fit. Then again some people surely rant and pretend even homonym has only one fixed precise sense too.

comment Is there a general purpose equivalent for the “agent suffix” -er of English?
This is a good answer. One thing though, you seem have backwards where I really was looking for a generic term for "drinker" (say the context such as water/soup/NyQuil was already clear, or it's intentionally left open or ambiguous). English "drinker" has this sense as well as the alcohol sense. Anyway you still covered it so thanks! (-:
