artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: ənaləfriz

Sentence: Harry’s girlfriend can be moody at times. He can easily judge her by the state of her hair. A quick analyfrizz of the time spent managing the locks could tell him how to deal with her.

She hadn’t seen him yet so he turned on his heel, ran to his apartment, texted her that he wasn’t feeling well and hid out for the evening.

Etymology: Analysis (short for psychoanalysis - a system of psychological theory and therapy that aims to treat mental disorders) + frizz (hair in a mass of small, tight curls or tufts)

Created by: artr

If all she has done is cram her locks into a scrunchie the world better look out.

I like hairballogy, but then again I created it. I guess it's lucky we can't vote for our own words...

CHANGES TO VOTING AND SCORING
Due to popular demand we are changing the voting and scoring rules. Here is how the new setup works:
1. Voting: Each player gets two "plus" Votes (Against votes have been eliminated.)
2. Creativity Points: You get 4 points for creating a word, 4 points for creating a sentence, plus 1 point each for the pronunciation and etymology.
3. Voting Points: Each vote counts for 3 points
NOTE 1: Let us know what you think about this...
NOTE 2: We have made the changes but it may have unintended consequences. Let us know if anything screws up...

...good of you to be so objective about things, wordmeister :)

Jabberwocky - 2006-12-01: 13:42:00
I like it alot - sometimes the sentences are better than the words. This will encourage all of us with fragile egos

wordmeister - 2006-12-01: 13:54:00
Check out the revised player standing -- chris and Jabberwocky are neck and neck. This could get vicious! Oh wait... They removed the negative voting. Dang!
