Numeronym (number-based word)

A numeronym is a word where a number is used to form an abbreviation (albeit not an acronym or an initialism). 

Pronouncing the letters and numbers may sound similar to the full word: "K9" for "canine" (phonetically: "kay" + "nine"). A similar example in French is "K7" for "cassette" (phonetically: "ka" + "sept").

Alternatively, the letters between the first and last are replaced by a number representing the number of letters omitted, such as "i18n" for "internationalization". Sometimes the last letter is also counted and omitted.

Examples:
  • 101 - for basic introduction to a subject
  • 212 - for New Yorker
  • 411 - for information
  • 911 - for help
