Enfathomable Neologisms

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:

Werdy 

White + Nerdy

Transolescence

When a group coalesces in a transformative way

Carmelting

When it’s so hot out your car feels like it’s melting

Rollop

A rolling stop at an intersection

Britch

Brain Itch

Pertrigue

To perplex and intrigue

A Rest Stop

Jail (also written as arrest stop)

Names are too long. They should be shortened:

Barama

Barack Obama

Michama

Michelle Obama

Saralin

Sarah Palin

Jiden

Joe Biden

Fritterand

Francois Mitterrand

Narkozy

Nicolas Sarkozy

Muaddafi

Muammar Gaddafi

Jussange

Julian Assange

45 Cent

50 Cent

… and so on.
