love this word - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 12:39:00

petaj Being in Australia really helps with the timing for me. I usually check the cartoon and new definition just before leaving work. Come up with a few ideas on the drive home and then hit the thesaurus and login during the early evening. My problem is, I often don't get to voting before the next definition is up. - petaj, 2007-06-08: 22:10:00

Pronehoundsiation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: prone hownd see ashun

Sentence: Maggie used pronehoundsiation when speaking to her pet dogs. She was sure they had a simpler grasp of our language and therefore litterally spoke to all of them as though they were stupid, hard of hearing and/or impervious to the teasing of other pets. Her schmoogie-woogie Schnauzer; her oodly-noodly Poodle; her chewzie-woozie Chihuahua; her orky-dorky Yorky and her musky-wusky Husky were all equally embarrassed by her linguistic torture. So they made a pact, every time Maggie used her verbal offensives on them, they would respond in cat-talk. When she used her endearments on them, they would reply with various impersonations of "Meow" "Mew" "Yowww" "SSSSSSSSSSS" and "NoooWWWWW". Maggie was so impressed that she bragged to her friends that her dogs had become bilingual. Isn't that itty, bitty, kitty nifty??? Who's feline better?

Etymology: Pronunciation (the manner in which someone utters a word)& Hound ( any of several breeds of dog)

Googoologos

Created by: diyan627

Pronunciation: goo-guh-lue-gus

Sentence: Cynthia's husband gets so embarrassed when she starts the googoologos when they have company over at their house. Cynthia just goes into this other mode when the dog, Lucy, comes around. No matter how much he tells her how absurd she sounds, googoologos is a refined mode of communication for her and her dog. He's started to keep lucy behind a baby gate in the back bedroom when the guests are there. That way, Lucy is out-of-sight, out-of-mind, and they can have adult conversations with their guests. And no one gets embarrassed.

Etymology: Goo-Goo= baby talk + logos= words, logic
