Pronunciation: di-a-leh-xt

Sentence: "OMG" never flashed through Kimberly's mind the way it flashed through the fingers of her niece, Destiny on the popular social networking site, facespace.

Precypher

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: pree sy fer

Sentence: Buzz took a summer job being a 'gofer' for Mr. Dave DaVinci, who was a man about town. He equipped Buzz and all his office staff with Blackberries so he could contact them constantly and give them instruction no matter when or where. This would be fine, but he had made up his own abbreviations which when put together, made absolutely no sense. Buzz was the only one who seemed to be able to precypher these messages and anticipate his boss' needs. No one else was able to translate the encriptions from the boss. Buzz would later brag that he had cracked DaVinci's Code.

Etymology: pre (Before it happens, prior to) & cypher (a message written in a secret code;a secret method of writing;convert ordinary language into code)
