TLF New Words Invitational


Recommended Posts

As per the Mensa rules - add, subtract or change one letter in a word and supply a new meaning.

I'll kick it off with:

Deafecation - the act of not listening to someone who constantly spouts crap

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Nice one Tony. And if we assume that yours in in the OED now as a result, can I offer :

Blaggage - the acquiring of luggage by a crooked handler? Or fake luggage via ebay (epay - oh theres another one)

Sarcorial - having an ironic dress sense

I picked the wrong day to work from home, didn't I?

Surely for mensa they would have to be real words

but if you want any word then from defecate you get refecate which is where just having finished a crap a minute later you have to back and crap again

an intelligent version might be defecaste, the Italian for second-person plural past historic of defecare, or their verb to poop

I'm with Alex, I think you guys have this wrong. The idea is to start with a real word right out of the Oxford Dictionary, add or subtract a letter to change into another word also to be found in the Oxford Dictionary, but with a different meaning. :geek:
