Pronunciation: fawn/eh/tic/al

Sentence: Josie was highly faunetical and could use her grasp of faunics to communicate with fauna all over the world.

Etymology: phonetic + fauna


Josie is obviously a highly talented human willing and able to faunacate with all animals. Another brilliant word! - Stevenson0, 2008-03-28: 07:00:00

She is particularly faund of farm animals, especially Mr. Ed because of his large........vocabulary. - Jabberwocky, 2008-03-28: 08:57:00

Excellent: great use of "fauna". Is she the same Josie of "Josie and the Pussycats" fame? I guess she spoke to them in "Catalan " What a faunabulary! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-28: 23:30:00

Pronunciation: zho-or-ah-kil

Sentence: "The Master demands a sacrifice, David," said Harvey, his canines bared as he paced along the fence next door, "He finds your limited faith insufficient." The labrador stopped and stared through the chain links at him vacantly. David held his head in his hands. Could this be happening? Was he a zooracle or just losing his mind? Either way, he had to silence the persistent animal, so he would silence him with sacrifice. "My fealty to the dark lord will be apparent by this afternoon." He disappeared into house and grabbed his .44 caliber Bulldog revolver, and stalked to his car. The tires squealed and the Ford Galaxie sped off into the city. When the car was a waning mirage the two teenage boys stepped out from behind Sam Carr's house, cackling with laughter and holding a walkie-talkie. "That Berkowitz kid is an IDIOT!" the taller of the two said, as they walked to the black lab and unstrapped the other handset from the dogs collar.

Etymology: zoo - prefix relating to animals, oracle - a chosen person who can interpret normally unintelligible communications from non-human sources


I considered 'oracle' as a component. I was thinking along the lines of, 'animoracle.' Nice combination. - stache, 2008-03-28: 01:27:00 er, dog. - stache, 2008-03-28: 01:38:00

excellent - Jabberwocky, 2008-03-28: 11:24:00

Wow, Banky! Very imaginative theory on the 'Son of Sam' serial killer story, (in case anyone didn't catch that), and, I might add, chillingly morbid. Great stuff. - Tigger, 2008-03-30: 03:42:00

Pronunciation: PET-OPHELIA

Sentence: The old neighborhood Just ain't the same Nobody knows just What became of Ophelia? Where have you gone? .....Ashes of laughter The coast is clear Why do the best things always disappear? Like Ophelia... Please darken my door. .....lyrics by The Band

Etymology: PET+OH!+FEELYA=PETOFEELYA.....PET: a domesticated animal kept for pleasure rather than utility perhaps back-formation from Middle English pety small.....OH!: used to express acknowledgment or understanding of a statement [interjection].....FEEL YA: late 20th centuy slang, possibly rooted in ebonics, derived from the phrase" I FEEL YA"-implying a deep, unspoken empathy bordering on mystical understanding..... FEEL to be aware of by instinct or inference. Middle English felen, from Old English fēlan; akin to Old High German fuolen to feel, Latin palpare to caress.....OPHELIA: A pivotal character in Hamlet, Ophelia is the most one-dimensional. She has the potential to become a tragic heroine but she instead crumbles into insanity, becoming merely tragic and ducklike. Ophelia sings songs and waddles around the stage,handing out flowers while citing their symbolic meanings and consuming millet. Although interpretations of the meanings differ, her telepathic contact with deceased waterfowl is generally accepted as a manifestation of madness- at least in the stage version that recently made it's North American tour of shabby playhouses and art-nouveaux beer gardens......
