[ mood | hopeful ]

hello everyone.
this community has been so quiet lately.
i thought i'd post the word i made up today: tangentize
"i tend to tangentize a lot when explaining things."
i thought it was kinda funny.

has anyone ever been to this site? its kinda right up our alley. and my word is already in there, so i guess i can't claim copyright!!!

So if you have any funny words - please make a new post and help liven up the comm.

Hi all!! Just found this community, so this is my first post :)

I have a Bachelor's degree in Language and Applied Linguistics, but haven't really done much with it - as I am now working at the Immigration Museum in Melbourne (in a non-linguistic related capacity). Naturally, I still have an interest in language and linguistics - hence, here I am :)

Thought fellow linguists would find this funny (it's a hyperlink, by the way): English is Tough Stuff. Check it out and let me know what you think :)

Happy LJing!

dear goth I havent posted here in a while...

well hello once again. I'm now a student at UCBerkeley so I'm bound to find more words.

Fenis-a penis that is a fish

This came about after reading a poem describing a penis as a limp fish. Odd poem? No just odd people reading it

Hi! I'm a weird and random and budding linguist...
Hopefully, I'll soon be in a grad program getting a PhD on the subject.
Currently I'm teaching English and studying Japanese in Tokyo

First Post [29 Jan 2003|12:59am]

I just joined this community (It's rather cute, by the way. Love it!) and thought I'd offer up my favorite word of all...

Shay: Pronounced just as it's written, shay is the all encompassing word. However, it is often a favored substitute of the word f***. Example: "Shay off." or "Shay you." and of course, "Shayer."

Heh. Sorry. Just had to spread a little random Tayaness.
Anyway, nice to meet you all!

Introduction plus words [27 Oct 2002|09:03pm]

[ mood | amused ]

Hi everyone. Just joined this community because I love making up words. Actually, I try to make up one every day. Glad to be here and all that. Here's my contributions for today. Bear in mind, these do display the level of insanity that I operate on every day.

snarfle(pronounced "snar-ful")--a laugh that is between a chuckle and a snort, or the way you laugh if you've got a stuffy nose.
(This guy in my senior French class always sounded stuffed up, so I said that he snarfled instead of laughed)

mogoly(pronounced "mo-go-lee")--bad, awful, horrible
(Derived from Mowgli, from The Jungle Book. My friend and I think that name is horrible, hence the word.)

cleanirificus totalus (pronounced "clean-uh-rif-a-cus toe-tall-us")--to clean thoroughly
(Made up spell, a la Harry Potter)

Told you I was crazy. :-)

Words To Live By ... Na ... [27 Oct 2002|02:54pm]

[ mood | geeky ]

My word for the day is:

Spunkosity - To have the a certain level of spunk. "That chick has the highest level of Spunkosity in this town"

Piccadily - A picture or photograph. "I really like this Piccadily of you"
