Of Creative Vocabuary

I've always found it admirable for individuals properly versed in the English language to produce their own words, assuming they utilize proper grammar and prefix/root/suffix systems.

Words I've Made and Enjoy:

Awesomeness - adj. The quality of being awesome.

Self-demoralizing - also adj. The quality of self-deprecating, when one doesn't know the word "deprecating."

Tofucken - n. A tofu turducken, made by stuffing faux-chicken patties inside Chinese restaurant canned faux-duck, all inside a tofurkey. Intended only for hilariousness in the company of vegitarians on Thanksgiving.

Hilariousness - adj. The quality of being hilarious.

Words My Turkish Grad Student Teacher Made Up By Accident On Her First Day:

Filmic - adj. Like "cinematic," but with fewer syllables.

Intertween - adj. Interpolated inside "between." Literally in the middle of the middle. Whatever's between the two things, this thing is in the very middle of that like a fuckin' molten core of iron, spinning quickly to thus provide a large magnetic field.
