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)

Dsighfor

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dee sye for

Sentence: Once again Nancy had to try and decode her boss's text message. She always hoped her hunky boss would find her as attractive as she found him and send her a personal message. So far she could only dsighfor his texts, which all seemed to be business related. It did not help that he was such a poor speller and tended to multitask while texting her instructions. The latest message was especially confusing. "Gout 4 drinks? Call" She didn't know if she should pretty herself up and make reservations or call his doctor to make an appointment...

Etymology: Decypher (convert code into ordinary language;read with difficulty) & Sigh For (an utterance made by exhaling audibly; indicating anxiety about one's emotional attachment for someone)
