Over the weekend, my friend and I were on an unusually long Metro ride. Without much else to do, we decided to entertain ourselves by creating new fancy-sounding words. It ended up being a little more difficult than we were expecting it to be. Nonetheless, it was pretty entertaining to create new words that really sounded like they could be real. Below is the list of what we came up with:
- splendificent (a mix between splendid and magnificent)
- sketchtop (similar to sketchy, like in a creepy way)
- mescalator (like an escalator)
- levelator (like an elevator)
Since these words are so new however, they don’t all have meanings. But I think that isn’t necessarily a problem. Having new words without specific meanings, allows you to utilize them however you please. And if/when someone questions your unusual vocabulary, you can just make up the definition based on context. Who knows, perhaps if you use a word enough with a consistent meaning, then it could just make it’s way into our vernacular. And now, wouldn’t that be neat?
