Excellent: great use of "fauna". Is she the same Josie of "Josie and the Pussycats" fame? I guess she spoke to them in "Catalan " What a faunabulary! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-28: 23:30:00

Pronunciation: PET ah gog

Sentence: The reason Ann Noy talks with animals is that no people WANT to talk with her. She is a petagogue, spewing her dog-ma all the time. She talks until she's horse. People are too cowed by her obviously superior intelligence to ox her what she's talking about, and it's too difficult to ferret out the meaning. Everyone ducks when they see her coming, and they just want to bat her away. So she long ago gave up trying to figure out why people were so catty about her, and retreated, tortoiselike, to her cocoon to live out her days as an animal whisperer.

Etymology: pet + pedagogue (a person who teaches, instructs, or talks in a manner that is excessively dogmatic, shows off his or her learnedness or overemphasizes minor details)

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)
