A new word I've invented
May 12, 2008 10:01pm CST
I love words, that's one of the reasons I love to write. The past couple of days, I've finally been brave enough to put my newest new word into print. I've used the word on several occasions on the Mylot website, and I'm interested to see if anyone thinks they would take on the word. And what, you ask, is the word then? The word is "Yummerlicious" (occasionally spelt yummalicious - I prefer the 'er' rather than 'a' in the middle. The meaning is a cross between yummy and delicious, with a little bit more than both, and I use it in real life quite often when I eat something that is particularly tasty. I invite everyone to try out the word, and we'll see if we can get it into the dictionary!

I love fantabulous! I can't remember any other words I've invented, I know there was one, Oh that's right - enknowledgement. It sounds so serious, and it's just teasing all those learned types who spout multi-syllable clap trap. Do you feel enknowledged? I'm glad to have added to your ongoing enknowledgement! Go and eat something yummerlicious! I love fresh baked muffins, with walnuts and fruit in them. I'd love to make some today, but we've run out of eggs and money - it will have to wait a couple more days. I'm thinking of carrot muffins next time, maybe sweet, maybe savoury.

I love newly coined words. Wouldn't it be great to get one into common usage! I prefer the first spelling because the second spelling has 'malicious' in it, which could give it a different meaning. To make it a true hybrid word you should leave out the middle R - yummelicious - as there is no R in either word. Keep using it and your new word could catch on.

If a word gets into publication, it's got a chance of getting into the dictionary. I don't think Mylot publication would do it, but if enough of us use the word, as widely as possible, who knows what can happen. Maybe if anyone out there writes restaurant reviews, and uses the word, it might get there!

That's interesting. I've never been one to create words, except when I was younger. I think the word yummerlicious will catch on with the right people. I think you should spread it around like wild fire, lol. Have you posted that word online anywhere else? I came across a website at the beginning of the year where you could post made up words. Try looking for it.
