Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: cell-par-a-tion

Sentence: Kat experienced cellparation anxiety one morning when her blackberry died abruptly in the middle of a tweet. Realizing that she would have to communicate face to face with people, she began to panic and tried to call in a sick day.

Etymology: cell+separation: wordplay on separation anxiety disorder

Calledsweat

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: cawld-swet

Sentence: Madeleine broke out in a calledsweat every time her phone dropped out during a phone call. It started with a ringing in her ears, followed by strange mutterings about how could anyone be dialling when they are pressing buttons and there is no dial in sight. But the most dramatic effect of her calledsweat was the profuse secretion of perspiration from her ears.

Etymology: call + cold sweat

Tranxiety

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: trang zye it ee

Sentence: Cella was experiencing it again. That feeling of tranxiety that she only felt while travelling on a train and losing her cell connection. Even if it was only momentarily, she was so addicted to her connections, that being without them, even temporarily, made her feel like a druggie without a fix. The truly sad part was that she was only calling the Weather station to find out the local temperature. It was seriously time for Cella to talk to her tranxichologist about her dependency. What the heck did people do before the onslaught of mobile communications???

Etymology: Transit/transport (to make a passage or journey from one place to another/a state of being carried away by overwhelming emotion;move something or somebody around; usually over long distances)& Anxiety ( a vague unpleasant emotion that is experienced in anticipation of some (usually ill-defined) misfortune;a relatively permanent state of anxiety occurring in a variety of mental disorders)

Incommanicado

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: In-com-man-ick-ar-doh

Sentence: Jane's heart raced as the bars dropped and she began to lose signal. She texted faster but just made more mistakes and had a sinking feeling she wouldn't know the answer before she lost network access again. "OMG u warin blu?" got through but then the ominous NO SIGNAL came up and she felt her eyes tearing up in frustration before she let out a wimpering shriek - "How am I supposed to know what to wear to the party?!" she screamed. "Aaaargh!" And as she looked at her shaking hands and tried not panic for the third time today, she had a vague recollection of her friend calling her "incommanicado", but the significance escaped her. How was she supposed to manage her life if her phone kept dropping out? Ridiculous.

Etymology: Incommunicado - colloquially used to mean unable to be contacted, usually due to distance, location and lack of communication equipment. Manic - colloquially used to mean frantic, such as running around unsure what to do, blubbering, agitated and stressing out.
