A new -nym

Posted by Bookworm on January 07, 2005

The radio announcer mentioned a new addition to the English language. I heard the tail end of it, but I believe he said "We have synonyms, homonyms and now we have onornymns(sp?)". In the snippet I heard he mentioned that "Toyota" was an example. As I've said, I only heard it briefly so my information is quite sketchy, but I hope this makes sense to someone.
