What word would you like to be in the English language?
I propose "descendulator", for an escalator that goes down.

Bugger. Forgot to put "Curious George" in. It is.
Cuntybooks. This has been a particular expression of mine for about 20 years. It means, essentially, bad news or an exclamation upon hearing adverse information. Viz: "Hi, Chy, how's your day been?" "Cuntybooks!" Anyone who has been in the Sturry, Kent, school library between 1982-1984 will know exactly whence this expression arises.
YOu've killed the thread, you stupid asshole!!!
I don't know what it means, nor do I care. I just would like it to be in the language.
entire books of these
And then some.
There's a campaign running at the moment to get the word
into the dictionary.
C.A.N. It was an acronmy for "cunt-ass nun" that I devised in college to describe some of the faculty. Not to be confused with "C.A.F.", which was, of course, "cunt-ass Friar."
Acronmy is sometimes known as "acronym" in parts of the world.
acronomy... the study of acronmies...
paging languagehat, please report to this FPP...
i would like to be "succotash."

And so you shall!

My daughter would say "lello" as opposed to yellow. I propose an alternative spelling to llello just so it appears in spelling-bees across the nation.
(lel · lo) 1) One who is loved. 2) A sweetheart or darling. "My dearest llello has a penchant for franbiffery."
I heard a page, but all I see is a wriggling succotash.
Oh, and I really like franbifflery.
The word, I mean. I've never actually franbiffled.
I always thought I invented "smorgasm", but I guess I didn't.
Oooooh, Pete, I'd love to see you in your fairy costume. I like fairy costumes. Does yours have wings and pants? Just for Pete, I propose the word PANTASTIC!
Catagasm: the pleasure experienced by a cat when you scratch it in just the right way, often on the back just near the tail.
nostril, don't forget
, the extremely pleasurable sensation one often experiences whilst using a cotton squab (q-tip)
Cantelabrum/a, goosh, and fizzlestick come to mind whatever these things could be.
. Not so long as there's
. The problem with lots of that kind of proposed word is that the coiner has a limited vocabulary, and is too pig-headed to try and find an existing word. It's what has inflicted abominations like 'proactive' and 'functionality' on us.
all those words other languages for complex and abstract staes and feelings
I need a word for the feeling of sitting in cool fine grassless dirt under a tree.
