Homophone Indicators

Neyartha's recent puzzles in The Hindu Crossword have carried well-disguised homophones, such as "team report" for CIDE{~side} and "closing word for the auditor" for YAWS{~yours}.

So I thought of putting together a set of homophone indicators. The basic trait of these words/phrases is a reference to sound or hearing.
