Lest you expect this post to be shameless thelf-promotion, let me just say that the neologism under discussion is not a thonce but, um, a melynonce.
As you may know, I have been graced by Melyngoch to read her sexy new book (check out those measurements!) and today I happed across melynonce to die for: shourt.
In fact, I think shourt might be a typo, but I love it all the same. And after thinking about it, I realized that it is a wonderfully useful word, no mere synonym for yell (of which synonyms we have plenty), but a new creature which carries the meaning of yell while also conveying a sense that the shourter is, while yelling, also covering the shourtee with saliva, the bastard.
I hate it when people shourt at me!
I like it...ReplyDelete
You have to see this post here.
(note--appearances aside, this is actually theric posting this comment)
isn't the whole premise of shouting based on it being loud? How tautologous!ReplyDelete
I liked shrout better than shourt.ReplyDelete
Ah, but say them aloud and then tell me why it must be shourt.
(Note: Master Fob is referring to a typo of my own that I corrected before anyone commented, in which all my shourts were shrouts.
It sounds like "short," only with a bit of "sour" to it.ReplyDelete
I agree with Master Fob.
No no no no no!
Shourt! Like shower + shout! Get it?!?!
I still like "shrout."
Thanx for your first, and only, comment! :)ReplyDelete
