Petanticate

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: pet ant ikayt

Sentence: Petula had gone to her Petiotrist many times to try and petanticate better with her pet pug, Petunia. Though a petulant pet, Petunia perpetually tried to pet peeve Petula by pretending not to understand her peticular speech patterns. Finally, Petula put herself in her pooch's persona and put out many puppy perks for Petunia. Amazing what prolific pet perks and persuasive pet lingo can do to persuade a pooch to perform with perfection!

Etymology: Pet (a domesticated animal kept for companionship or amusement) & Pedantic( marked by a narrow focus on or display of learning especially its trivial aspects) & Communicate (transmit thoughts or feelings or information)

Excellent word petaj - hmm... I wonder why you have pet in your pseudonym - perhaps petios is your second language - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 09:05:00

You're just lucky I work all day--that word was my first instinct! - mplsbohemian, 2007-06-08: 20:15:00

petaj petois occurred to me straight away when i checked the cartoon before leaving work. Then I had to go to tennis and didn't get home for a couple of hours, so I was hoping that no one else would think of it. - petaj, 2007-06-08: 22:18:00

petaj I'm embarrassed to admit that my only second language is verbotomese. Typically in Australia, most of us have not become fluent in anything but English. - petaj, 2007-06-08: 22:29:00
