海上自衛隊。Kaijo Jietai. “[We are the Japan] Maritime Self-Defense Force.”

The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (海上自衛隊, Kaijō Jieitai), or JMSDF, is the maritime branch of the Japan Self-Defense Forces, tasked with the naval defense of Japan and formed following the dissolution of the Imperial Japanese Navy after World War II. The force is based strictly on defensive armament, largely lacking the offensive weapons typically handled by naval forces of equivalent size.

A homophone is a word which is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning, for example: carat, caret, and carrot. Homophones may be spelled differently, but the term also applies to different words that sound the same and are also spelled identically, such as “rose” (flower) and “rose” (past tense of “rise”). However the more precise term for the latter class of words is homonym. Neither of these words should be confused with homosexual or homophobe. The term may also be used to apply to units shorter than words, such as letters or group of letters which are pronounced the same as another letter or group of letters.
