I am looking for a term that describes a specific category of words, as well as some other examples.
For example, the category homonyms. Homonyms (also called homophones) are words that sound like one another but have different meanings. Some homonyms are spelled the same, like bark (the sound a dog makes) and bark (the outer layer of a tree trunk).
So the category name I am looking for is for words where their word origin is false. Two examples of these words are sunrise and sunset. Sunrise and sunset are used to describe the Sun rising or setting over the horizon. However, the Sun does neither. The Sun does not move, as the Earth rotates on its axis and causes the appearance of the Sun moving.
What is this category of word called? And what would be some other examples?
