Ever make up a word or words of your own? Maybe an accidental blurting out of some combination of vowels and consonants that seem to fit the situation you were in at the time? Perhaps mispronunciation enabled you to coin a new word that worked better than the real word. How you remember words and how your brain interprets them may also unwittingly allow you to establish a new word or phrase' Recently in the Religion sub-forum I came up with psychocryptictheology. A combination of two common English prefixes seemed to fit perfectly in from of the word theology for the purpose of getting my point across. Several times in my life I have come up with new words, not intentionally, but accidental. One day at work I blurted out the pseudo-word constabulate when a person in the office was shuffling paper. People took the word on and started using it every time somebody did something, no matter what. Like.....did you and the missus do a little constabulating last night. It was good for morale and worth a few laughs. Mispronunciation is one way for great sounding words to appear that act as a substitute for the real word you're trying to utter. My young daughter used to always pronounce the word catsup (or ketchup) as pekitch. I still pronounce it that way whenever I see a bottle of Heinz's best. How our brain interprets what we hear can also lead to some exciting new terminology. Jose Feliciano recorded a Christmas song many years ago. I was a youngster and wasn't up on my Spanish, so whenever Jose would belt out Feliz Navidad I thought he was saying Release Puppy Dogs. Imagine my surprise and embarrassment when I learned of the true lyric. So how many of you are willing to share your manufactured words with us. Perhaps we can judge their quality and possibly lobby Webster"s to adopt it. Or maybe we can have a good laugh.
