Pronunciation: anee-mun-sea-ate

Sentence: Lauren has always been an animal lover. Her parents supported her animunciation hoping that it's just a phase in her growing up life. But when they were told by Lauren's teachers that she animunciates with the rats and frogs in her school's biology lab, they knew something was wrong. Later on when she went to college and one Thanksgiving week they received a call from her that she is bringing "someone" with her, it got them all excited. Finally, the Thanksgiving day arrived and the door bell rang; Lauren's parents opened the door beamingly to find her animunciating with a dog!

Etymology: Animal + Enunciate (to speak clearly)

Pronunciation: PET-OPHELIA

Sentence: The old neighborhood Just ain't the same Nobody knows just What became of Ophelia? Where have you gone? .....Ashes of laughter The coast is clear Why do the best things always disappear? Like Ophelia... Please darken my door. .....lyrics by The Band

Etymology: PET+OH!+FEELYA=PETOFEELYA.....PET: a domesticated animal kept for pleasure rather than utility perhaps back-formation from Middle English pety small.....OH!: used to express acknowledgment or understanding of a statement [interjection].....FEEL YA: late 20th centuy slang, possibly rooted in ebonics, derived from the phrase" I FEEL YA"-implying a deep, unspoken empathy bordering on mystical understanding..... FEEL to be aware of by instinct or inference. Middle English felen, from Old English fēlan; akin to Old High German fuolen to feel, Latin palpare to caress.....OPHELIA: A pivotal character in Hamlet, Ophelia is the most one-dimensional. She has the potential to become a tragic heroine but she instead crumbles into insanity, becoming merely tragic and ducklike. Ophelia sings songs and waddles around the stage,handing out flowers while citing their symbolic meanings and consuming millet. Although interpretations of the meanings differ, her telepathic contact with deceased waterfowl is generally accepted as a manifestation of madness- at least in the stage version that recently made it's North American tour of shabby playhouses and art-nouveaux beer gardens......
