Developer Numeronyms

What is a numeronym?

A numeronym is a shortened representation of a word or phrase, where all the letters except the first and last are replaced by a number representing the number of letters that get replaced. For example, the word “mouse” has 3 letters excluding its first and last letters, so its numeronym is m3e!
