Pronunciation: EL/ev/i/tay/shun

Sentence: Passing through Chicago's "Gold Coast" on the Brown Line trains, Cassie gazed mindlessly into the million dollar condos--bargain-priced because of their proximity to the el--and entered an advanced state of elevitation. She imagined herself sipping gourmet coffee made by a machine worth more than she gets paid in a week, reading the New York Times and sharing interesting tidbits with her fabulously wealthy (and good looking) husband. Cassie's elevitation was so powerful that she suddenly discovered she had ridden the train all the way around the downtown Loop and was passing those same condos again, on the other side of the train.

Etymology: El as in elevated train, as it is especially known in Chicago, combined with levitation--To lift or raise a physical object in apparent defiance of gravity.

Transitdence

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tran sit dens

Sentence: Charlie rode the commuter train twice a day, everyday from his home in the burbs to his job in the city and back. It was a long monotonous ride and after he was just a few minutes underway, he would always nod off. At that point he would fall into a state of transitdence. The repetitive click of the rails hypnotized him during which point his subconcious was open to suggestion. This might explain why when he got to his destination, he would have no shoes on, or cluck like a chicken or have new facial features in felt markers, like a monocle, a villainous moustache or Clockwork-orange eye make-up. Yes, those commuter gremlins could be cruel and vandalize you and turn you into human graffiti if you didn't stay alert.

Etymology: Transcedence(the state of excelling or surpassing or going beyond usual limits; a state of being or existence above and beyond the limits of material experience) & Transit (make a passage or journey from one place to another) & Trance (a state of mind in which consciousness is fragile and voluntary action is poor or missing; a state resembling deep sleep)

Transitreverie

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tran sit rev er ree

Sentence: Charlie fell into his usual state of transitreverie the moment he sat on the bus. It was an hour long commute downtown from the sticks. He had tried reading books (always fell asleep after five minutes and often missed his stop) and tried doing work on paper or on his computer, but found it too noisy and bumpy to concentrate. Of late, he plugged in dreamy music and let his mind flow free. He imagined things about the passengers...like that cute girl in a trench coat might be a spy. (As if cute girl spies often took the bus to work). Or he imagined what he would do first when he won the lottery. Or that he'd invent something really clever or that he'd find the girl of his dreams. Yes, Charlie looked forward to his hours of daily dreaming. One day he got busy and wrote a song about it, made a bundle on his hit and his song became an anthem for commuters all over the land. Wake up, Charlie and drive properly...you are going to have an accident driving this bus if you don't stop your transitreverie!

Etymology: Transit (commute;make a passage or journey from one place to another;pass across (a sign or house of the zodiac) or pass across (the disk of a celestial body or the meridian of a place) & Reverie (absent-minded dreaming while awake)

Stunrun

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: STUN-ruhn

Sentence: Although Bruce was fortified with a triple king-sized coffee and a fistful of No-doze, he was not looking forward to the morning STUNRUN. Reading was out of the question... the last time he tried that, he woke up at the end of the line with creases on his face. As he watched the bleak byways of industrial desolation crawl by, he remembered a STUNRUN he took a while back. Catching himself in a commuter's REM state, he hastily got off at the wrong stop and found himself in an unfinished, uninhabited proto-terminal in the Hackensack Marshlands. He wore out his patent leather Florsheim shoes that grim day just walking back to the fringes of civilization, and he wasn't eager to repeat that particular nighmare anytime soon. Getting home at the end of the day was bad enough, but the morning STUNRUN was just marginally more fun than a bone marrow transplant. And today was only MONDAY!

Etymology: STUN+RUN=STUNRUN.....stun: to make senseless, groggy, or dizzy by or as if by repeated blows-Middle English stonen, stunen, from Anglo-French estoner .....run: the distance covered in a period of continuous traveling or commuting b: a course or trip especially if traveled with regularity-

Sentence: Monday morning. Coiffed, clean-shaven, & caffeinated.
