New Word Wednesday #48

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:

chalock:  (noun) an abbreviated chastity belt made to wear under a thong; as in, "Anna was fashionable but chaste and always wore her chalock when dating."

karoonpi:  (noun) a pie made from kangaroo meat and coconut which is considered to be a delicacy in the land down under; as in "No holiday meal would be complete in Australia without karoonpi for dessert."

refulac:  (noun)  a shortage of rubbish or refuse; as in, "With all the recycling taking place, one would expect the landfills would be suffering refulac."

ukiali:  (noun) slang term given to the alley near Pearl's house where Liza Bean Bitey's band Squeak Toy holds jam sessions; as in, "Squeak Toy was practicing for their next concert in ukiali, when the ukulele player snapped a string."

uncti:  (noun) a term of endearment for your parent's sibling who is transgendering; as in, "Uncti Pat was very active in the LGBT organization."

Don't forget--use a word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!

Some great ones in here, as always, but "Uncti" was my fave, I think that should be a real word. I hope you are submitting these to Webster!

Terri Sonoda said...

Good ones! Love the Uncti one.

Sue said...

A chalock, huh?

My favorites were definitely karoonpi (gross!) and uncti.

Brian Miller said...

Bossy Betty said...

I think I dated a guy named Chalock once. He had the same effect on me.

Niques said...

What a fun & creative idea! karoonpi is my fav - I like the way it rolls off my tongue, although I might be a little hesitant to actually try a karoonpi :) Thanks for stopping by Niques' Serendipity yesterday and leaving me some comment love!!

Al Penwasser said...

To say nothing of "Uncti Chaz."

The Frisky Virgin said...


Uncti is brilliant, too!

Joann Mannix said...

Oh, I so love Uncti. I actually have someone in my family who could qualify as an Uncti. Great job as usual!

Allison said...

Great idea! :)

Eva Gallant said...

Frisky: Have you lost the key to your chalock?

Terri: Thanks!

Niques: Thanks for stopping by; come back soon!

Allison: Glad you enjoyed it1
