Pronunciation: /ˈɹɛtɹoˌbaʊnd/

Sentence: GILMORE GIRLS SPOILER: As expected, Lorelai's fling with Chris turned out just to be a retrobound.

Etymology: From retro- + bound, as in "rebound"


I switched to IPA for pronounciation. It makes it seem more professional, which makes it seem funnier to me. - ErWenn, 2007-02-16: 10:38:00

The funny thing is that I don't even watch Gilmore Girls. All I know, I pick up from snippets overheard from the other room while doing my homework while my better half watches. - ErWenn, 2007-02-16: 10:40:00

You know, if everyone could vote an unlimited number of times, or if there was a ranking system, instead of a voting system, that would take care of several problems at once. It would fix the late-post deficiency as well as the too-many-good-words problem.

Maybe no new words should be displayed until there are at least 10, so you won't be tempted to vote until there's a sizeable batch of words.

ErWenn - 2007-02-18: 10:16:00
Or even just switch the vote to yesterday's verboticisms while people are creating today's.

That would have the added (mostly good) effect of giving me something to do on Verbotomy on Saturdays.
