I came across this ‘word salad’ post by Raili over at Soulgifts. Some of these word associations are just hilarious!!! I hope you enjoy these neologisms as much as me and Raili’s readers have.

 

Saturday Smiles – Words, Words, Words

 

 

Neologisms 

new words or a new use for an old word, or the act of making up new words

in mental health used to describe a symptom of brain dysfunction

as is the delightful term word salad used to describe a string of random words

 

Now, down to business.

Cobs over at Cobweborium Emporium  brought my attention to this delightful list from the Washington Post’s annual neologism contest:

  3. Abdicate (v) to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach.
  4. Esplanade (v) to attempt an explanation while drunk.
  5. Willy-nilly  (adj), impotent.
  6. Negligent (adj), describes a condition in which you absent mindedly answer the door in your nightgown.
  7. Lymph (v), to walk with a lisp.

  2. I love neologisms. I have several lists I’ve collected over the years. Makes you wonder what people are doing when they coin these words. I’ve always envisioned a group of renegades around a table in a pub downing beers and shooters while laughing their arses off 🙂 ❤️
