I'm wondering if there is a name for words which describe a function where the thing described doesn't relate to the reality of the function anymore. Examples:
dial, as a verb. "Dial the phone". Dial phones are largely unused now.
footage, used to describe a video recording. Large digital now.
filming, used to describe the act of making a video recording.
This is almost like a retronym, but is kind of the other side of that coin.
This might be a duplicate of Word that means "outdated name"
