This question just came up on another list I'm on..........
As all knowledge is in listdom, I thought I'd pass it on with utmost faith 
in its answer.
Begin quote..
Hi all,
litterally a word name question.
Is there a name for words that say what they are?
(not expressed too clearly)
eg.
Hyperactivity
kinda obviously 2 words crunched together. But I am sure there are others
where this happened so long ago we no longer think of it (I thought of a good
one yesterday. Yup. u-huh.)
sort of the oposite of nominative determinism
