Help Identify Plant

I inherited this plant and have no idea what it is. Some leaves are developing spots. There are no visible signs of bugs. Any help is appreciated.

did the plant move locations... and how did light change ????

RE: Help Identify Plant

Thank you for your reply ken -
I have not repotted it. The smaller leaves are new. The leaves grow very large, change to a purply color and then fall off. The plant has not changed locations, except that I rotate it once a week. The crock does have drainage, and the soil is very dark (even when bone dry).
I have no idea what type of plant this is. Should I be concerned about the spots, should I trim the woody stalks?
