“Ginormous” makes it big in the non-dictionary competition.
Want to be like Snoop and add a little more shizzle to your vocabulary? You are in luck. “Non-English” is booming, according to the editors of Merriam-Webster dictionaries. They recently asked web users to submit their favorite words currently not listed in the dictionary and received more than 3,000 submissions.
- ginormous (adj): bigger than gigantic and bigger than enormous
- confuzzled (adj): confused and puzzled at the same time
- chillax (v): chill out/relax, hang out with friends
- cognitive displaysia (n): the feeling you have before you even leave the house that you are going to forget something and not remember it until you’re on the highway
- phonecrastinate (v): to put off answering the phone until caller ID displays the incoming name and number
- lingweenie (n): a person incapable of producing neologisms
Though Merriam-Webster rebuffed my submission of “shitfest (n): a celebration of poor results” again this year, it does seem that if you aren’t already using these awesomtastic words in your regular showcabulary, you’re just missing out on the chizzy. In the meantime, you can learn to speak Snoop with a little help from the Shizzolator.
