NEWORDS!

August 27, 2013

It’s always more exciting when you use all caps and an exclamation point in your blog post titles. But it’s not just graphic hyperbole – this post is SUPER EXCITING because I am introducing some important new words that you will want to shout from the rooftops (assuming you’re not living in a country where they shoot you for that, which is harder & harder to find).

Word needed! A metal container is a can and a glass container is a jar. But we have no word (that I know of) for a plastic container. I suggest plidge, because it rhymes with “fridge,” and thus would be a boon to the both the poetry and music industries.

Tomorrow’s Technology Today!

May 25, 2012



Here are some new technology ideas:

a. iSmell: Olfactory Inputs on Computers – absorbs & analyzes smell; information sent to reciprocal terminal where smell is reproduced & released. There are all sorts of potential benefits from this technology, though I assume it will mainly be used by teenagers to send farts through the internet.

I Can’t Believe They’re Not Words!

Ballcock

Miscredit:

How is it possible that “miscredit” is not a word? If someone is incorrectly credited with something, we should be able to say that she is miscredited. For example, Thomas Crapper is commonly miscredited with the invention of the modern toilet, and thus the word “crap” derives from Mr. Crapper’s name. In fact, the word crap pre-dates Mr. Crapper; it is of Middle English origin. Mr. Crapper did, however, advance flush toilets quite a bit with his invention of (and if any of my middle school students have stumbled upon my blog I’ll never hear the end of it) the ballcock, which is still in use in today’s toilets.

Scatlas, from scat and atlas: a map of the world’s poop.

Grointment: Ointment for one’s groin

Musickening: The feeling you get when you listen to top 40 radio music

Now you try it: Take a potentially funny word and see what words start with the end of your word. Then combine them to make brand new words!

Improved Words!

January 14, 2012

The results of the Great (Daisy) Brain Experiment (see previous two posts) are in. No brilliant post topics came to mind. And so, I bring you a post largely written before the experiment but held off for publication in case my brain suddenly produced something more profound, which it didn’t. So, here it is….

Words are a little slow in keeping up with the culture. I’m here to help them along….

Lackadaisical should be “Slackadaisical”.

Enemy should be “Unfriend”.

Election should be “Purchection” (Purchase + Election). Read the rest of this entry »
