An incorrect or unwanted word that appears in a text message when using the predictive text function on a mobile phone. A predictonym uses the same key combination as another word, but is not the desired word.
For example, "room" is spelled on a mobile phone by typing "7666" and so is "soon", hence "room" is a predictonym of "soon". Other common predictonyms include "of" and "me"; "go" and "in"; "home" and "good"; "book" and "cool".
