Just heard a new neologism on the radio.

Wasn't sure where else to put this, so I put it here.

The term was blazenly, and in the context of what he was saying I think it was a combo of blatantly and brazenly.

I don't think the speaker necessarily meant to create it, but I found it interesting.

Carry on

(Yes I know 'new neologism' is sort of redundant, but I don't care)

1. A friend of mine, when in her teens...

 

...used to come up with charming portmanteaux like that. "Stompled" (stomped/trampled) and "packlet" (package/booklet), etc...

2. how about this..

 

The prictator sneerked as he directed his army to stomple the people's packlets.

It's probably not advisable to use that many in one sentence, though.

5. My mother had a principal who would combine

his clichés. He 'd say things like "Don't stick your neck out on a limb" and "We'll burn that bridge when we come to it."
