New Word Wednesday #3

Every time I comment on a website where I have to type a word verification to get my comment posted, I can't help but think, "What a waste! What could possibly be a very helpful word is now going to disappear and never be seen again." With all the attention being paid to "going green" in this country, I think it's time for bloggers to go green and recycle the letter combos used in word verification. (I personally did away with the process to eliminate the waste of words, but some people just aren't as conservation minded!)

I decided a couple of weeks ago to start a meme called "New Word Wednesday", thus creating a dictionary of new words based on the letter combos that pop up in the word verification process. You may feel free to do the same, or to grab my words and use them. (You know, if you use a new word three times, it's in your vocabulary forever; at least that's what I've heard) Just think, we can learn new words and go green just by recycling/reusing the words that show up at comment time.


Here are this week's new words for your use as you see fit:



diatibr:  a warrior whose main weapon is a powered by a diatum cell; as in, " The diatibr attaked the infidels, stabbing them with their light sabers."


glyse:  a group of flagrant fibs spoken by a suitor in an effort to gain access to a ladies' bloomers; as in, John was great at weaving glyse when romancing a barmaid."

mictivite:  to offer someone an opportunity to speak or sing with a microphone to a group; as in, "While attending the concert, Alan received a mictivite to come up on stage and perform.

pubdeh:  the riffraff or commoners known to frequent and hang out at pubs; as in, "Sarah refused to enter the establishment, for fear of being considered one of the pubdeh."

stypolo:  a team sport played while riding on hogs, the objective being to score goals against the other team; as in, "The boys got quite messy playing a rousing game of stypolo."


Join the fun and create a list of your own!
