Words that should exist

Post by Sir Moose » Wed May 31, 2017 1:59 pm

When I was growing up, Sniglets were a big thing. Sniglets, for those of you who don't know, are "any word that doesn't appear in the dictionary, but should." Many of them are humorous or fill in a gap in the language that most of us don't notice until somebody points it out. Over the years, I've come up with some words that fit this category and I'm sure many of you have as well. This thread is a good place to share those words with others. Here are a few of my:

Pressert: Any food item that would normally be considered appropriate for dessert, but which is consumed before a meal.

Prefuse: To tell somebody, "No," before they have a chance to ask. (Can also take the form of Preny or Preject.)

Pretire: To quit working before quitting your job. (See also ROAD - Retired on Active Duty)

Hypobole: 1. Minimizing of something 2. Exaggeration of the smallness of something

I'll probably think of a few more to add later.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Prepulpify

A quick check to make sure there is adequate toilet paper available before releasing the kraken in a public restroom.

I've always used "devolution" in similar situations: Onyx has devolved to eating crickets, for instance.

Rerealize: to understand something as if for the first time, for the second time.
Urineight: having to get up all night to pee
Puntificate: to go on and on about something as if you understand it when you have no idea what you're talking about
Add hominumb: to insult someone so often it no longer bothers them
Reductio abs absurdum: another term for anorexia
Cogito ergo some: not as dumb as he looks


Punnoying: trait of not knowing when you've made too many puns and you're beginning to bother other people.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

J.R.R. Tolkien



Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

Ok, thanks mr. grammar police. I'll let the impudent know if/when he texts that you've already brought the issue up.
