Fundibula

Created by: ErWenn

Pronunciation: /fənˈdɪbjulə/

Sentence: One's fundibula are not invisible, though we are often disinclined to see them.

Etymology: From Vonnegut's chrono-synclastic infundibulum. The way I see it, the place where everyone's personal fundibula meet is a chrono-synclastic infundibulum.

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

I was very close to selecting the word "fundilia" without reference to Vonnegut, but then I realized how close it was to infundibulum that I couldn't not steal it. Incidentally, I'll be very disappointed if tomorrow's definition is not "those places where all the different kinds of truths fit together." - ErWenn, 2007-04-19: 08:04:00

I'm hoping that tomorrow's definition will be "a proud and meaningless association of human beings". Nice word by the way... - wordmeister, 2007-04-19: 10:12:00

Thank you. - ErWenn, 2007-04-19: 16:00:00

Fiberoptimism

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fy ber op tim izim

Sentence: Zoe decided that her destiny rested on the fiberoptimisim of those around her...where she fit into the great skein of things. Spun like the rich tapestry of her life, many people stood out like like gold and silver threads...sew rich in character, shining examples, sterling in their influence and adding value and sparkle to the lives of others. Others were more basic and filled in the background and sketched the pattern, woven with little flair, but constancy and predictability and a good yarn from time to time. Then, of course, there were others, like Uncle George, who became unravelled or frayed if he got needled and always needed to be mended and kept in stitches. Oh yes, Zoe decided, I am going to hoop it up, because if you didn't give a darn,it could be a crewel world out there!

Etymology: fiber (the inherent complex of attributes that determine a persons moral and ethical actions and reactions) & optimisim (a general disposition to expect the best in all things;the optimistic feeling that all is going to turn out well) & fiber optics (the transmission of light signals via glass fibers)
