Tissidue

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: TISH-i-dyoo

Sentence: You imprison me in the dark recesses of your bags and pockets until I'm ready to be used for your most basic needs. You wipe your filthy hands on me; you spit on me.

But remember it was you who you made me what I am - tissidue - for there was a time when I was a tree.

Loogiellution

Created by: XMbIPb

Pronunciation: /lu-gi-lu-shen/

Sentence: Just dusted off my copy of Galen’s “Physiologia” to figure out the right body fluid to use for this challenge. You know, come up with something phlegmo-hemo-uro-bilious… but “phlegm” is already taken by another player. Then my gaze fell on the old Penguin Classics copy of Aristotle with his four elements… but nothing geo-hydro-pneumo-flammable came to mind. Oh well… I guess, “LOOGIELUTION” is the best I can offer at the moment. Too bad that by now I’m too drunk to use it in a coherent sentence… Sad.

Etymology: LOOGIE (n.) (fr. mod. Eng. slang) – snot, phlegm, sputum, booger, “lung cookie;” LUTION (n.; fr. Lat. lutum) – mud, filth (e.g. "pollution").

Pronunciation: myu kas KAYD

Sentence: Vy Russ had had the flu for the past three days, and the tissues that she had been dropping in the little trash basket next to the couch had accumulated and begun to overflow. She was so tired and dizzy that she didn't even feel like emptying the basket when she went to the bathroom, so it had become a mucascade of snot rags tumbling, avalanche-like, to the floor. Too bad she lived alone. Or maybe, good thing she lived alone and no one else had to be subjected to it....

Etymology: mucus + cascade
