Most great new words are unplanned – you inadvertently mix two words together or you don’t quite remember a certain word so you make one up to fit the moment. The other day, my wife combined envision and fathom to create “enfathom.” Sometimes, you just can’t enfathom an outcome. I often can’t enfathom the outcome of an election.
Other new words are created to fill up blog posts such as this. Inspired by “enfathom,” I bring you the following list of brand new words, which I encourage you to immediately start using in your daily life:
White + Nerdy
When a group coalesces in a transformative way
When it’s so hot out your car feels like it’s melting
A rolling stop at an intersection
To perplex and intrigue
A Rest Stop
Jail (also written as arrest stop)
Names are too long. They should be shortened:
… and so on.
