Category:Numeronyms ?[edit]

Might be useful to add a Category:Numeronyms. DFH (talk) 10:40, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Done. Some tidy up may be required. I found a few anomalies. DFH (talk) 15:53, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Can someone add pronunciation? I'm not sure if the accent is on the first or second syllable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:46, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

K9 is a Homonym?[edit]

Don't the numbers in a numeronym refer to the number of letters ommited from the abbreviation? In contrast, a homophone is a relies on the sounds of words/numbers/letters, so K-9 isn't really a numeronym but rather a homophone (at least according to wikipedia here. Aren't better numeronyms for the introduction, like maybe i18n or l10n which are more widely used and recognized and obey all the "rules" of numeronyms? Hobsonlane (talk) 23:25, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

The examples page of this page is growing and featuring a large amount of, frankly, unnotable examples of this example. Has anyone really referred to numeronyms themselves as 'n7ms'? I think we should trim down the examples list, for example only to those with citations to show their notability. I don't want to remove large swathes of items without a second opinion though - (talk) 10:56, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
