Word of the Year

Nov 17, 2010 by

And while we are on the subject of “creative” word formation, do you have a favorite made-up, “undictionaried” word?

In addition to undictionaried in the sentence above, I recently made up disignore (a blend of disregard and ignore). A student in one of my classes suggested coolth (by analogy with warmth) and pessimal (the opposite of optimal).

Do you have any other words you’d like to share? Or vote for your favorite word among the already-suggested ones. Use the comment section below to respond. I’d love to hear from you.
