Sentence: Sylvia rocked and weaved as the transit bus moved through the traffic. She was about to break her own transbustandinstation record as the bus approached her stop until a mini cooper pulled in front of the bus at the stop sign and the driver slammed on the brakes forcing her to grab a pole.

Etymology: trans-bus (beyond the bus) + stand + in station (absolutely still) = sounds like transubstantiation (the magical transformation wine and bread make in church)
