Increase Your Vocabulary

24 August 2012

The Sydney Morning Herald this week has been inviting readers to submit new words that they’ve invented by merging two existing words.

My favourite so far is “testiculate” – which means to wave ones arms around while talking complete bollocks.

I can’t wait to use that (and if past experience is anything to go by, I expect to get an early opportunity).


  1. Well, there seems to be a lot of it going around!

  2. I love it!!!!!!

  3. Great word, let us know when you get the opportunity to use it.

  4. Plenty of competitors in that field lately!

    I submitted a word for that many years ago. It drew many favourable comments but has totally slipped my mind now.

    My son, then five, once told me MIL had told him to wash his hands or he would get “parsimonia.” As she would make Scrooge look like Santa , I had the mental picture of her constantly washing her hands.

  5. Love it!
