Etymaulogy: The coining, splicing, ruffling, condensing and mutating of words. Throwing words together to create something new.

When we do this with ideas, it is called inspiration, and the world grows.

When we do this with words, it is called etymaulogy, and the world grows.

Etymaulogy is a word I dreamed up a moment ago. It is an example of etymaulogy.


Protectoplasm – Does it protect you from the other side? Or does it protect the other side from you?

Prewarication – Sniffing round that thing you were meant to do, not approaching it, not entirely sure it is a thing that should be done.

Cornuphobia – The fear of plenty

Further examples of etymaulogy more than welcome 🙂
