To Confabulate to chat with another; to have a conversation with another.
A Confabulationism A mass convention of chatting held annually OR an expression of utter glee.
A Disconfabulationism An expression of extreme "querelousity", sadness or anger.
An Antidisconfabulationism See "A Confabulationism".
A Postantidisconfabulationism The period of various mood changes, speech patterns and behaviour that occur before a period of antidisconfabulationism.
A Prepostantidisconfabulationism What happens before a postantidisconfabulationism, except this is before a postantidisconfabulationism can possibly be detected.
Right now I am full of disconfabulations as my more antidisconfabulationist sector of my mind has been frazzled by a prepostantidisconfabulationist paracetamol.
To be in a rambunctious state of mind means to be extremely jubilant. This is normally used when one eats fifty teaspoons of sugar and 25.7 recurring chocolate bars. Something which I have never done would never advise anyone to do. Normally, this feeling is periodic, unless you are high.
To be querulous is to be extremely peeved. This is often used when one has 23 delayed trains, forgotten all her homework, has 26,989 tests in one week and has 33.3 teachers chasing her up for work. This is normally only periodic, unless you are a devout nihilist.
What the smeg is this supposed to mean you imbecilious American-dictionary writers??? A great knowledge of feet?
Pedo – from pes, pedes in Latin (or something similar in Greek – FP doesn't support Greek writing, I think). This means FOOT.
Philia – this comes from 'philia' (phonetically written) which means friendly, or some other language, perhaps Latin, in which it apparently means a great knowledge of.
SO… Pedophilia means either 'a great knowledge of feet' or 'friendship with feet'.
AND… Bibliophilia means a great knowledge/love for books.
AND… A Francophile means a person who is fascinated by and loves the French language.
SURELY paedophile (the CORRECT way to spell it) should be used to mean "a great knowledge of children" or "being friendly with children". SO in theory, parents are paedophiles.
Paedophilia is used too strongly – "being friendly with something" has been warped to mean "being sexually explicit with"… Which is ridiculous. And so has "a great love for".
THIS IS WORD CORRUPTION I TELL YOU.
I remember the first time that Florence and I contemplated about the word "suspended".
'The 07:08 train to Willesden Junction is suspended due to a signal failure.'
At first, this gave us the impression that the train was hanging in mid-air because the signal failure had created a black hole which in turn warped gravity and caused the train to be held in a finite space-time continuum point where movement was impossible…
However… After looking in the dictionary, we found out that it did, in fact, also mean 'to be held back'.
That brings us to the next word.
From Fictionpress' wonderful dictionary:
adj 1: brilliantly clever; "scintillating wit"; "a play full of scintillating dialogue"
2: marked by high spirits or excitement; "his fertile effervescent mind"; "scintillating personality"; "sparkling conversation"; "a row of sparkly cheerleaders" syn: bubbling, effervescent, sparkling, sparkly
3: having brief brilliant points or flashes of light; "buglebeads all aglitter"; "glinting eyes"; "glinting water"; "his glittering eyes were cold and malevolent"; "shop window full of glittering Christmas trees"; "glittery costume jewelry"; "scintillant mica"; "the scintillating stars"; "a dress with sparkly sequins"; "glistering' is an archaic term" syn: aglitter(p), coruscant, fulgid, glinting, glistering, glittering, glittery, scintillant, sparkling(a), sparkly
Etc… You get the point. Anyhow, scintillating has become an important and every day part of Florence's and mine vocabulary. We often express how the train tracks scintillate when sparks jump between the train and the tracks (surely you've seen this happen a few times). We also express how something is scintillating when it is interesting and shrewd.
Our geography teacher will be very proud of us. After studying anticyclones, Florence and I created the one and only Postanticyclonic Depression.
This is a term that describes when someone suffers intense periodic depression before an anticyclone occurs.
Moyenne Bourgeoisie and the Proletariat
I am a moyenne bourgeoisie… Not quite. I am not the ideal capitalist. Historic terms used to describe the working classes (Proletariat) and the middle classes (Bourgeoisie). I'm supposing that the upper classes were the Lords and the Aristocrats. These terms have mostly disappeared now, except for Lord, as they were only used in some distant era in Edwardian/Victorian/Somethingelseian period.
I think that I'll stop typing now. I have run out of inspiration. Any ideas for new words would be greatly appreciated.
NB: Not all of the words mentioned here are real.
Us Moyenne Bourgeoisies suffered from Postanticyclonic Depression yesterday, but this morning we were very antidisconfabulant. However our train was delayed by 14 minutes and 3.5 recurring seconds, so as a result we were very querulous and not at all rambunctious. My friend went through a periodic moment of pedophilia and could not take her eyes off her feet for around ten minutes. However the train tracks were very scintillating and there were 25.6 recurring signal failures, so the train was suspended in mid-air for a long time.
