A word that is misspelled in a manner reflecting that the writer has confused its spelling with that of a homonym, i.e., another word that sounds the same. The greater the disparity between the spelling of the word intended and the spelling used, the better the confusonym.
In the sentence, "Anyone no if I'm aloud to bring my video camera into Yankee Stadium?," "no" and "aloud" are confusonyms for "know" and "allowed."

The use of confusonyms has become rampant with the advent of email, blogs, web-based social networks and other electronic forums because they ease the weigh for the less-attentive and less-educated two put, in writing, they're to scents inn.
