The new conversational phenomenon of removing several letters of a regular word, thus creating a new shortened version of the word.
Shortbonics is creating slang by shortening regular words. "Totally" becomes "totes". "Jealous" becomes "Jeal". For example:
Taylor: "Sandy said my calves look fat in these shoes."
Jessica: "Ugh, don't listen to her, she's just jeal."
Taylor: "Totes jeal."
