What are “Oronym Words”?
[Oro- Whole; Nym: Name]
An oronym is a word or phrase that sounds very much the same as another word or phrase, often as a result of sounds running together. Oronyms are spelled differently and they have different meanings.
Oronym [singular] | Oronyms [plural]
Example: A name ---- an aim
Some Important Points:
1. An oronym is also called a continunym or a sliceonym.
2. An oronym generally originates when it is difficult to tell where one word ends and the next begins (e.g. a name -- an aim). An oronym also originates when a particular word may be divided into two or more meaningful words (e.g. affection -- a faction).
3. Effectiveness of oronyms may depend on what somebody is saying in context with the rest of the conversation.
3(A). Oronyms may completely alter the meaning of what somebody is saying.
They wanted the allocation of the house.
They wanted the location of the house.
3(B). Oronyms may also make conversation very funny.
