A slang, or series of phrases, used by those from the generations of "Great Generation", "Silent Generation", and some "Baby Boomers" to describe a noun, verb, or situation that earlier generations tend to misunderstand.

Eldonics consist of phrases such as "It's raining cats and dogs!" and "your barn door is open".

Eldonics also consists of the suffix "Itty" preceding with words that rhyme with "It." Other incomplete slang words are "dem", "der", etc.

Eldonics also consist of misconstruing words such as "Indian" to be pronounced like "Engeeine" , en-jee-uhn.

The prefix derives from the word "Elder" and the suffix derives from the word "phonics".
