“A portmanteau is two words smushed together to make a new word that combines the meaning of the original two. Think “brunch.” These frankenwords (that’s one right there) give you more meaning with less wordz!”
– said someone on the internet
“Frankenwords” from above.
Masturdating — going alone to a movie or dinner
Textpectation – anticipation when waiting for a text
Carcolepsy – when a person always falls asleep when the car starts moving
Unkeyboardinated – continually makes
miskates mistakes while typing
Beerboarding / Shotboarding* (I made that up) – extracting secrets from someone by getting them drunk
Doppelbanger – someone who has sex with someone who looks like them, but is not related to them
And blog, of course.
I also like “truthiness” so very much! It’s not a portmanteau, but it strikes a perfect, reverberating chord. Where has it been all my life?! Thank you Stephen Colbert for speaking it out loud.
Have a good weekend…
