Sentence: We told him that his significant smother wasn't really controlling enough to constitute an amogarchy, but it was just a foma.

Etymology: from amo- (romantic love) and -archy (government)

COMMENTS:

Significant smother works better than amogarchy, which I'd have as "a system of rule by lovers"- a truly scary notion. Still, the sentence alone is worth a vote. - Bulletchewer, 2007-04-17: 13:17:00

Thanks, and I agree that "significant smother" is better, but I never like having to cram two-word terms into a one-word entry. - ErWenn, 2007-04-17: 14:05:00
