Marrage

Created by: Stevenson0

Pronunciation: mer/rage

Sentence: On finding her new husband and the maid of honour, she went into a state of marrage throwing and breaking everything she could get her hands on.

Etymology: marriage + rage

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

I considered something similar to this before deciding it didn't really allude to the sheets or the cheats as well as other words might. Marrage, to the casual observer, may as well be a nondescript form of anger directed at one's spouse (to be). It lacks specifics. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 08:00:00

Great word, simple and succinct - you just have to stress the second syllable to get the full effect - try it - Jabberwocky, 2007-03-27: 09:55:00

That's nice (^^), but ditto my previous comment regarding it being too generalised for the definition, and that it makes the assumption that the mental state induced would be one of anger, as opposed to shock, disappointment, disbelief etc. For me, assigning rage as the sole emotion here is myopic. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 11:23:00

methinks we have a psychiatrist in our midst - Jabberwocky, 2007-03-27: 12:19:00

No, just a fool who's seen too many shrinks in his time. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 15:31:00

Certainly not a fool - good sense of humour though - Jabberwocky, 2007-03-27: 19:54:00

COMMENTS:

Anyone referencing Mr T deserves credit. Plus it's outta left field (original) and quirky enough to fit the definition. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 11:28:00
