I'm looking for a word to describe something.

Say I have the word "note". Then "Eton" would be called an anagram of "note". What would you call "not" or "ton" in relation to note – possibly a "partial anagram"?

    On similar lines: Is there a term for a word inside another word? But Joey words are not supposed to be anagrams – Mari-Lou A Dec 13 '16 at 23:06
  • But in my answer of mine, "kangaroo words" allowed anagrams Word for “No I in Team” – Mari-Lou A Dec 13 '16 at 23:12
  • I recommend an essay by James Thurber to you: 'Do You Want to Make Something Out of It? (Or, if you put an "o" on "understo," you'll ruin my "thunderstorm")'). – Airymouse Dec 14 '16 at 1:52
  • I thought it was indeed called a "partial anagram". I am happy to have learned about Joey words serendipitously – HenryJekyll1886 Dec 15 '16 at 12:24
