picklechipsluva5 commented on the word fester
This word, though somewhat grotesque is one of my all time favorites. Festering wound. Gives me chills.

Oh yeah, and the misspelling two below. *Dictionary
Sorry about the misspelling below. *Debateable
Another word would be roof, although it is debateble. It is listed in the dicionary as both "rufe" and "roof (oo as in book)." Which do ya'lls (ha) use? I use roof, not rufe.
picklechipsluva5 commented on the word wash
I absolutely hate it with a burning passion when people say warsh. Ughhhh...
picklechipsluva5 commented on the word ask
I have to say, it really makes me laugh when people say, "I need to axe you something."!
picklechipsluva5 commented on the word jabberwocky
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bit, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in though.
And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.
"And hast though slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.
(A poem that preceeds Through the Looking Glass)

picklechipsluva5 commented on the word oregon
I am pretty sure that at least everyone in my city does prounce the word ora-ggin. I wonder if I use the proper pronunciations for other cities and states. Hmmmmmmmm...
April 4, 2007
As if everyone from the East Coast and Midwest don't pronounce this wrong too!

picklechipsluva5 commented on the word quizlet
It is actually not a genuine "word," but one that was invented by my english teacher.

picklechipsluva5 commented on the word plotlet
I absolutely agree. I, personally, am a huge fan of Napolean Dynamite, but I also enjoy plotlets in other movies, stories, etc..

I am not that concerned about finding my words in the dictionary. As you can see, I have a list titled, "Words that should be words, but aren't."
picklechipsluva5 commented on the word compostrophe
Actually, some of my friends and I have been inventing the words on this page during our english class. I have yet to find one, but if someone does, will they please list it?
picklechipsluva5 commented on the word wanksta
I believe it is spelled wangsta, but i like this spelling as well.
February 18, 2007
An apostrophe that also includes a pause (like a comma).
February 16, 2007
A plot that does not have very much motion. Some do not consider plotlets actual plots. You can find a plotlet in the movie Napolean Dynamite.
A quiz that is not graded, but must be retaken if the quiz-taker has done very badly (bombed).

picklechipsluva5 commented on the word panoster
A panel that is part poster. It is like both in simultaneously.
picklechipsluva5 commented on the word invisicat
Another word for the voices inside your head, as in, "I have a cat, but you just can't see it. It likes to tell me what to do..."
picklechipsluva5 commented on the word clauselet
This word means a dependant clause. It, alone, would not be a complete sentence.

uselessness commented on the user picklechipsluva5
I think what jennarenn meant is that the parenthetical comment should go on the page for the word, not in the word itself. Of course you can do whatever you want, but using that format means you'll be linked to other people who add timesed in the future -- which can be a nice thing on a social site like this.
I love your lists, by the way!!
curligirli0 commented on the user picklechipsluva5
Love the "Words That Should be Words, but Aren't" list... it's audacious
jennarenn commented on the user picklechipsluva5
I can guarantee that you won't find the word "timesed (not a real word, but annoying anyway)" in the dictionary. ;) What you want to do is enter timesed as a word and put your commentary (not a real word, but annoying anyway) on the page for that word.
