it suddenly occurs to me that this is exactly the job of our web browsers' "autocomplete" function (i turn mine off, for the record... find it irritating).

surely some clever person can think of a play on words which incorporates a conversational aspect to "autocompleter"?

"autocompleterrupter" is a bit stilted .

There are plenty of words for the person, but, you *must be looking for an imbedded description of the act. LOL!
