Imaginary words and meanings.

Post by Feather on 29th April 2011, 22:49

I thought this might be good fun. Make up a word that doesn't really exist. The next poster suggests its meaning.

eg-----benseration

Feather, I think this is a great idea you had for a new game, but might find it difficult since I don't know the origin/roots - latin, greek, etc, of words. I hope we are allowed to just use our imagination?

Anyway, after much thought I could only come up with:
malfarpated: man with a badly shaved head

New word: combuzzle
