A textonym is a word which becomes ambiguous when using predictive text due to having the same button combination as other unrelated words. They often make a text confusing or incomprehensible.
Particularly prominent in drunk texting.

Words that are related in their combination of button strokes, usually on a phone's number-pad and with T-9 or similar methods.
For example the number combination 4663 yields: home, gone, and good. Or 63 yields: of and me, these words would be textonyms of each other.
