Explanation:
As a first guess, I'd say they are talking about words that are spelled the way they sound - true dem Laut.

That should read \"treu dem Laut.\"

Oxford says of \"phonetic\" - (of spelling) corresponding to pronunciation.

So if you\'re not comfortable \"phonetic words,\" then you might consider \"phonetically spelled words.\"

  -> The way I understand it is that it means that the word is "true to its pronunciation," which is what "phonetic" implies.
