Words I call Twins (Jumelles): so similar that it is easy to make a mistake with them, or sometimes the same word with more than one meaning:

Le larbin/le larcin : the servant, the flunkey/the theft.
Un laps/un lapsus : a period of time/a slip of the tongue.
La ladrerie : 1) miserliness, meanness 2) the leper-house.
