New Word Wednesday #20

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 several 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:


consib:  (noun) a brother or sister who is incarcerated; as in, "Herb is working very hard to get his consib released with DNA evidence."

cyconag:  (noun) the term used to refer to a wife who is borderline pyschotic and constantly fault-finding; as in,  Henry's wife's behaviour was so erratic and belittling, he referred to her as his cyconag.

iness:  (adjective) a word used to describe a person's excessive ego; as in "Martha broke up with Tom because she could no longer tolerate his iness."

refrapim:  (verb)  an action performed at an ice cream parlor when someone is dissatisfied with their milkshake, as in, "When George complained that his milkshake was watery, the clerk decided to refrapim."

turtor:  (noun)  a term used to describe a shelled reptile when one is not sure whether it is a turtle or a turtoise, as in:  "The Zookeeper directed the children's attention to the turtor sunning itself on a rock."
Remember, use them 3 times in a sentence and they are in your vocabulary forever!

"cyconag" I wanted a word like this for a long time. And here you present to us on a silver platter. It must be my lucky day.

Mrs B said...

Looks like cyconag is the most popular word this week, and I'm not one to disrupt the flow... I really do love the word. It fits more than a few women I've met in my life. One of my in-laws comes to mind. Great New Word Wednesday!

Heh, heh. I liked, "refrapim". It would also work well with all of those annoyingly named coffee drinks.
