Made Up Words

February 18, 2010

How excellent are these? Image from Bedzine.com

Just when we thought we had mastered the English language, strange new words appear.

No, not technical words (there are always more of these), but words with meanings in their collaborations. Is this a trend … or have words always been collapsed and conjoined ?

Words like Chillax (which has the completely opposite effect on me) ,Webinar (…. I need to invent some new words to truly express my angst over this one…) and even upcycled seem to be adopted quickly into our conversations.

We here at the A team enjoy playing with words too, and have created a few of our own.

co-wordinated: someone who is good with words.

evenchtables: vegetables that eventually get eaten.

sarcasistic: a personal tendency towards sarcastic /narcissistic behaviours.

annoising: being annoying loudly!

trudgedy: long slow tradgedy

bundlism: a modern technique of arguing a position by bundling all the individual ideas together so that each individual idea gains strength from it’s surrounding ideas whilst losing individual argument priority. To believe one idea is to believe the all, and the same with rejection.

Do you make up words? Have you heard any interesting new words lately? Please share, we love extending our vocab.

    I like it and it sounds a little Spanish as well, which makes it an even cooler word for you.
    I just left a comment on your blog and the security ‘word’ was quitynit. This is now a new word…. because I so want to. How many years of primary school do we have left?
