New Word Wednesday #6

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 words:


ignoe:  one totally lacking in knowledge; as, in:  "He had no idea who Martin Luther King, Jr. was--he's such an ignoe!"

nonap:  the period of time in a mother's life between childbirth and kindergarten; as in:  "You'd better get your rest now while you're pregnant," said Anne's mother, "because once that baby arrives, it'll be nonap until he goes to kindergarten!"

preate:  food that has been consumed and regurgitated, as in, "This cottage cheese looks like it was preate."

pregin:  the period of sobriety in an alcoholic's life, as in, "George was much more pleasant and easy to live with pregin!"

unvaga:  lacking  a vagina, as in:  "Once her transgender surgery was completed and Ann became Arthur, she was unvaga."

I loved this toady and last week too and I've been collecting words but this week they all sounded foreign so I didn't join in...maybe you could do a continental version..'glimsky' - how bad the weather is in Poland today. 'merdez' what a French person says when he stubs his toe etc.

I'm just getting my daily Eva fix!

Sofia's Ideas said...

LOL! I'm still in nonap!

BTW, I replied to your comment on "its nothing personal, its google" and asked you a few questions. I really respect your opinion so when you get a chance, I hope you'll come back over! :)

Tam said...

As usual, you're hilarious! Here's one I saw today: suicab. You're far more clever and witty than I, so maybe you can add that one to your list sometime. I'd love to hear what you come up with!

Just jumped from your site from Facing 50 With Humor.
She is one of my best followers and I trust her judgment. She certainly hit the nail on the head with yours. I LOVE TO LAUGH and have been looking for sites to feed me in this way.

Thank you....I still have a smile on my face!

I hate to say it but I was having fun with this and defining on the word when I left a comment. Mannnn, should have done something with that!

I am moving on to some of your other posts>>>>>

moving on>>>>>>>>

"ignoe" reminds me of a name we used as kids...kinda like: "If you were a little smarter we could call you an ignoeraymus instead of a dufus."
Again thanks for making me stop when making a comment and think now how can use this word in a sentence. ;)

Eva Gallant said...

Glenn: So glad I could help with your education; I'm a former teacher, you know!

Sofia: Being retired, nonap is no longer in my vocabulary!

Tam: I will work on suicab for next week's list!

OutofMyMind: I don't know about a blog hop; I'm not yet that proficient; I will give it some thought. In the meantime, LOL (the laugh lady) posts peoples funny blogs. You may want to check her out by clicking on her button on my blog. Also, those nonsense words in the comment box are supposed to keep robot scammers from leaving comments on your blog.
