metrohumanx Good word, but I got tongue cramps pronouncing it! - metrohumanx, 2009-03-05: 12:47:00

I can't even say this once slow let alone three times fast ... must need an alien tongue to say this one! Superb tongue twister! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-05: 15:02:00

metrohumanx I think my comment was supposed to appear beneath "Pedesastrian".....AEROSIS is clever and eminently pronounceable. - metrohumanx, 2009-03-05: 17:23:00

Spaceflip

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: spays flip

Sentence: Star crazed Sunny Boy, star gazed, while drinking a martiani (oops! martini) or two ... well actually quite a few. He searched the Milky Way and found Mars and a 1000 Grand stars. Then he saw Gal Axy and Unoch Verse in their space ship! Sunny quaked and did a spaceflip!

Etymology: SPACE, FLIP. Space flip is a play on space ship. Space - as in outer space referring to everything beyond earth's atmosphere. Flip - as in 'flip out' meaning to suddenly lose your cool and sanity from fear.

Astralphobia

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: as tral fo beeya

Sentence: Stella had but one fear to live with...astralphobia. She was convinced that aliens were invading our planet and that one by one from stars and moons and planets and galaxies, extra-terrestrials were planning an invasion of our world. This fear may in part have been fuelled by films like Independence Day, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and E.T. In fact, she was sure that some space travellers were already amoung us. How else could you explain Donald Trump's Hair or Paris Hilton? She had heard that some were coming here to procreate with humans to help infiltrate our society. She decided that she would never join an on-line dating service just in case. It would be just her luck to meet someone from Uranus or other disgusting places!

Etymology: astral (to do with the stars or heavens) & phobia ( fear of...)

Doomzdaze

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: doomz-dayz

Sentence: It was 1971 and Inertia was too frightened to go out of doors. Doomzdaze, as well as the haze of smoke from a certain dried flower, hung over her like a cloud--a radioactive UFO-shaped cloud. Lately, even the indoors was terrifying. The Paul Klee prints on the walls were alive and talking to her. "Go to the desert," they said. "Wait for the flying saucers to pick you up." Oh, to have the strength to pack the dried apricots and brown rice in the van! Maybe the Ouija board was right: California is falling into the ocean!

Etymology: From DOOMSDAY, a Day of Judgement + DAZE, to stun, stupefy

Ufofrighting

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: u f o fright ing

Sentence: The most recent of Lunar’s ufofrightings came at the time she was searching through a particularly tangled shrub in her garden for what, we can only imagine. Lunar knew there was something lurking in that gaudy intertwine of Hydrangea/Lilac: she could sense a presence waiting to lunge! She pressed her lips together. Her piercing gaze into the shrub was easily interrupted by, high in the distant sky, a luminescent puck, a ufofrighting! It immediately removed her from her paranoidormal search into the greenery. Lunar tore quickly into her tiny kitchen, double-locked the door, pressed her lips together and fixed a piercing ghaze up into the sky...

Etymology: from ufo sighting and fright - to fear the appearance of an unidentified flying object
