Purple..love your word! Sounds like an Irish drinking song refrain: Confido diddle-ee-ido-daiday! But I guess we should consider your word in Ernest...! Cheers - Nosila, 2008-03-28: 23:03:00

Verbetrate: /Ver-beh-trait/ As a self-absorbed bipedal anthropoid vertebrate Jenny found herself often unable to communicate effectively with others of her kind, largely due to her grandiose verbosity, vective and vacillation. She was thus a verbetrate and spent most of her time quakkety-yakking (but ducks were not such good listeners), gibbon-gabbing, and slither-blathering. Etymology: Verb: doing word, such as 'speaking'; Vertebrate: animals with backbones, such as mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, but not politicians. This group is obviously so big that the few members who are actually human are neglible. I note this word is often misspelled as 'verbetrate' by an interposition of the "b" and the "t", hence found as such in google. Betray: turn to the 'other' side, ie. talk to the animals rather than humans.. Also Verberage and of course Verbotomy. Created by: dochanne.

Petagogue: /PET ah gog/ The reason Ann Noy talks with animals is that no people WANT to talk with her. She is a petagogue, spewing her dog-ma all the time. She talks until she's horse. People are too cowed by her obviously superior intelligence to ox her what she's talking about, and it's too difficult to ferret out the meaning. Everyone ducks when they see her coming, and they just want to bat her away. So she long ago gave up trying to figure out why people were so catty about her, and retreated, tortoiselike, to her cocoon to live out her days as an animal whisperer. Etymology: pet + pedagogue (a person who teaches, instructs, or talks in a manner that is excessively dogmatic, shows off his or her learnedness or overemphasizes minor details) Created by: karenanne.
