Dentricanyonitis

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: den-tri-can-yon-i-tis

Sentence: Frank was too young, of course, for dentricanyonitis, but he had failed to take proper care of his teeth during college when all he ate, or rather drank, were smoothies from Whreezer Whred's (Whred was of Maori decent and in that Polynesian language the F sound is signified by Wh.) As a consequence Frank's gums had receeded and left canyons between his teeth where the food he now ate for free as Manager of Whred's sister's business Whanny's Whried Whoods. Fortunately Whanny offered her employees dental care. Frank is so grateful, he is thinking of changing the official spelling of his name to Whrank.

Etymology: From dentric, related to teeth + canyon, a deep gorge between two natural structures
