Words are only as good as the meanings we assign them; if no one understands you, you might as be speaking Wombanian.
Fraz is being creative…so, let him be!! 😉
That’s what I say!!
Isn’t that what Sarah Palin does?
Is it? I’ve never really paid much attention to her.
“Dude, she’s totally lost it”
“Dude, you’re actually listening?”
—A movie where this is the only actually quotable part
What’s really creepy is that if you put those words through Google, you actually get some results! The words are not so new after all!
Well if new words are going to be made up, they’ll probably end up online long before they show up anywhere else. And Google will be the first to know about them.
Are you sure? I never heard of that before.
“She who must not be named” doesn’t make up new words, she just strings existing ones together. If you’re not listening carefully it SOUNDS like it makes sense, but ….. NO.
In other words, a true politician!
he’s got a very logical mind
At least when it suits him he does.
I think Fraz has done a great service. We all get tired of hearing & speaking the same old words & need some new ones to revitalise our interest in language. So the only other thing I have to say on the matter is Zaphalot
Language is constantly evolving, but we could help it along faster by inventing our own words.
“Zaphalot” Now that gets only one result in Google, this thread. Talk about good SEO, results wise anyway. Now all the Wombats need is for someone to search for “Zaphalot” and they will be at the top of the search results!
I guess I’ll have to try to figure a way to brand “Zaphalot”. Maybe a new slogan: “If you read Wombania, you’ll zaphalot!”
Oops, Dixie’s details were still saved in the comment fields
Dixie is a much more perceptive poodle than I thought.
And here I was thinking tony finally sent Dixie to diction classes.
Confidentially, I think Dixie is posting as Tony half the time. I think she might be an undercover spy poodle or something.
Licensed to chew.
Fraz is very smart. People make up words all the time and we all seem to catch on. Fraz is doing the same thing.
Fraz would agree with you that he’s very smart. Trouble is, sometimes he outsmarts himself.
I like it. I think I’ll do the very same.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
If we all do it, none of us will know what we’re talking about.
Fraz is a Wombie after my own heart!
I often start a sentence/thought, then half way through I realize:
a) there’s no way I can finish it correctly
b) it makes no sense. What-so-ever
I sometimes try to throw in a few made-up words in an attempt to save face. I can never quite pull it off, though. 🙂
That sounds very much like Fraz. Perhaps you two could get together and write a book: Reflections on a Wombie World.
I’m learning a new language right now and am tempted to have the same idea.
Making up a new language is a lot more fun than learning a new one.
It’s got to be tons easier too! 🙂
I’m gonna go around saying that all day! Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂
I used to make up my own cuss words when I was little in order to avoid getting in trouble. My parents were so irritated but they could do nothing about it because the words meant nothing to anyone but me. 😀
You must have been a lot of fun for your parents!
New words can be useful but today it seems not many are even bothering to fill out the word. They just use initials. LOL ROTFL LMAO
U R right.
I can’t believe you used the “S” word
But it’s a nice “S” word!
Oh, sorry I thought you said; Scamcong…
Bizabop? Bizabop!!! I know exactly what he means and, frankly, I’m shocked! 🙂
Not as much as we were!
I like it – from now on I’m going to use ‘Bizabop’ as an alternative to ‘b*llocks’ or ‘B*gger’ or . . .
Just be careful how you use it as it could get you into trouble.
Tsk, tsk – I’ve never heard such language from a Wombie before
I’m shocked I tell ye, shocked 😯
Fraz needs to wash his mouth out with soap and water !!!
Yes, we already did that but I’m not sure it did any good. Next time we won’t use chocolate-flavored soap.
This could turn into a gilfirted mess that could knock the whopfozzle out of the whole fumbuzzle of society. My family has been makin’ up words as long as I can remember. We couldn’t afford a dictionary. Way to go Fraz.
But I was just trying to continue your family tradition!
I like Fraz’s thinking! isn’t that how new languages came to be? My brain is more scrambled more each day & my own words & thoughts get all mixed up, so I tend to talk side-ways. I think Fraz would understand 😉
That probably is how new languages evolve; perhaps you & Fraz could work on a new version of Wombie English.
Oh great idea! I think we should start on chocolate definitions 1st!!
Does that mean we get to taste test lots of chocolate first?
You might be right.
Bopieboo to you, too!
I wanted to leave a nonsense word as my reply, but I see that’s already been done.
Really? You mean some of those aren’t real words?.
Bathykolpian. It’s not a new word, I didn’t make it up. I just like saying it.
Are you saying you are?
That saves me. Thanks for being so sensilbe!
Word themes are both here and at my site this week. Choosing the right ones is an art. So is making up new ones, I guess. I Googled “Bizabop” and actually got 23 results. Nothing in English or understandable though which I guess is the whole point.
Which is odd, since “bizabop” was on this page three times before you mentioned it, and zaphalot only occurred once, and yet it was indexed. Google is a hard nut to crack, and you often end up ranking for odd things. If you Google “national geographic cover”, some familiar faces turn up, usually in the top ten.
Well there’s only one word for this and that word is “Glazafodrak!”
Oops, I mispelled that. It should be “Glåzłfòdræĝ”
I’m glad you corrected yourself as I hate to edit my commentators.
making up your own words could come in handy… for one thing, no one can dispute their meaning!
That’s definitely one of the narbonkaledges!
Are you making this up as you go along?
I’m trying to.
