[en] through vs threw

Correct me if I’m wrong, but “I through the ball” should be marked as a homophone error

That’s right. We use statistics to find errors like these, but to avoid too many false alarms, we have to tune LT in a way that sometimes an error is not found, like in this case. If you’re interested, you can write a pattern rule to detect some more cases, as documented here.
