There are many situations for which there is no actual word but instead you must use several words.
I want a word for everything.
So here I think we should invent some much needed words.

I already have one:

Shamalol (sham-ah-lol)

When someone writes LOL (laughs out loud) but infact doesn't make even a peep of a noise. Their LOL is fake, it is a sham. It is a shamalol.

One of mine from recently:

Mediorca - a slightly dull, average family, mediteranean holiday destination.

Amazing.
These are really needed for the English language.

I like the name of the breed of the new Top Gear Dog

Labradoodle - cross between a Labrador and a Poodle.

I have one... sort of.

Cellindrome (or possibly cellonym): Two words that have the same predictive text entry pattern (for example, the first option when you type my name is Lands).

i wrote the word 'turtillian' in a course work essay thing for english o level back in school (o levels!) and the teacher said i couldn't have it as a word cos it dint exist or nothin, or somethin.

she asked me what it ment and i said 'of or like a turtle', and she said i still wasn't allowed to have it.

but i left it in and got a A fo it Very Happy

And she said well done after Razz

so i think it is my word, and if anyone ever uses it we out askin me fost i will sue em for royalties, or summut. You can all use it tho, if you ever find the need, s'long as you do a asterick thing and quote me as being the owner of it Thumbs Up

Surely the word should be 'Turtlish' ?

Or maybe Turtlesque?

Barsdette (Bahr-stet)
A really rude female who acts selfishly all the time. Feminine version of a bastard.


Pershirt (purr-shirt)
A typical, slimy, bum grabber who frequents pubs and bars only on weekends. Often has over-gelled hair and almost always wears a shirt, usually Ben Sherman.

What, ain't y'all never heard of Sniglets?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sniglet: A sniglet is defined as a "word that should be in the dictionary, but isn't".

Must be a US-only phenomenon. When I was in high school, we had a great time with this. Or maybe I am just old.

I didn;t invent it but calling someone a 'Joey' or 'Deacon' was a British high school phenomenon in the 80's.



It's still around today, but modern chldren have no idea of it's origin. Rolling Eyes
