New Word Wednesday #52

We’ve all encountered them—those pesky word verifications intended to keep spammers off websites.   After three years of blogging and encountering these barriers on a daily basis, it occurred to me that great new word possibilities were being wasted.  Why, every day I would type strange letter combinations, hit “enter,” and the letters would disappear, never to be seen again!

I decided that it was time to document these strange letter combinations and assign a definition to them, thereby creating some wonderful new words for our vocabularies.  Following are  5 of these new creations for your enjoyment; feel free to assimilate your favorites into your everyday conversation.  Your friends and co-workers will be envious!

Today's words:


ddtyw:  Senior Code used in texting, means: Done Dinner; toilet, yes! Where? as in, "After eating, I received a desperate text from Carol--ddtyw?"

menzitya:  (adverb)  a superior attitude due to a real or perceived greater level of intelligence, sometimes exhibited by members of Mensa; as in, "Ever since he took that I.Q. test and found he scored above 140, he acts so menzitya

orianta:  (noun) a parent's sibling raised in the far East; as in, "Luci Lui was Tommy's orianta."

uncest:  (noun) a sexual relationship step-siblings--not incest, because they are not related by blood, but still ...ewwwww!; as in,  "When John's mother remarried, her new husband had a daughter John's age, and from then on, uncest was on his mind."

urrent:  (noun)  the amount paid monthly for housing; as in, "Tom said I pay $500 a month for this place; how much is urrent?"

Remember:  Use a word three times and it's in your vocabulary forever!

You do a good job with these, Eva. I find myself doing the same thing now when I'm filling in word verification spaces.

Ew! Uncest is gross! But, really, there should be a word for that. I think you've discovered it.

Tee-hee...I like the uncest one! You must be getting close to having enough words for a book. Thanks for making the cheesecake - happy to hear you liked it!
