There are some examples on the PHP.net web site.
http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.soundex.php
http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.levenshtein.php

Soundex() returns a string.  If you get two different strings from applying soundex() to two different variables, you can  test the difference with levenshtein().
