I am putting out a call for everyone’s favorite portmanteaus. These are words that have been created by melding two other words together. Let me give you a few examples:
Smog = Smoke + Fog
Blog = Web + Log
Brunch = Breakfast + Lunch
One of my mother’s favorites: Fantabulous = Fantastic + Fabulous
One of Bill’s coworkers came up with: Gription = Grip + Traction
My personal favorite, because it’s such fun to say: Spork = Spoon + Fork
I want to hear your favorites. If you make them up, that’s all the better! Let’s have some fun with words!
