Mumsense

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: MUM-sense

Sentence: I know mummy won't be happy with my verboticism, but "mumsense" does at least sound respectable - although, I hope she doesn't pick up the connatation of nonsense. I thought about "mumifesto," but it has a "red" ring about it.(Mummy burnt daddy's socialist literature in the early 1950s, thinking that god-fearing man, McCarthy, was about to arrive in Australia). "Matrimatum," certainly not - she wouldn't like it; "Mama Sutra" - we don't talk about that sort of thing in our family, and I'd better forget about "Nuture-hurture": she thinks rythming words are ever so incredibly silly. I'd better stop verbotomizing right now, for the word "matrinark" keeps coming into my head.

Etymology: MUM & SENSE with connatation of nonsense.

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: pair-ant (parent)

Sentence: The paranting Perry received in his later teenage years was focussed on finding himself a nice girlfriend, and if he'd just acted on the parant, he could now be married to that nice Melanie from no. 42 with the perfect teeth and 6 figure income, instead of dating the beautiful, curvaceous Bambi who has 3 kids from 3 different fathers and no sense at all.

Smotherspeak

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: smuth-er-speek

Sentence: Jason cringed at the very sound whenever his mother began a sentence with a motherspeak preface. "I like the (fill in noun or phrase), but..." Yes, it was like everything she would say before the word "but" softened you up for a reprimand, left-handed compliment, or unsolicited opinion.

Etymology: We put the mother in smother + speak, as in newspeak, from the George Orwell novel 1984 where language was manipulated to control thoughts and ideas
