Chunking is the psychological, subconscious ability to group certain pieces of information together in order to make a chaotic system more manageable. The ability to recognise and recall phone numbers (chunks of 7 digits) would be an example of this phenomenon. 

The vocabulary term plays a large role in Raph Koster's A Theory of Fun for Game Design.
