Growing up, Jonathan and Hilary Krieger’s vocabulary was enlivened with a word their dad, Neil, used whenever a citrus fruit squirted you in the eye - a word they couldn’t find in a dictionary. Turns out he’d made it up! But with his passing last year from COVID, the Kriegers have set out to honor Neil by getting his word officially recognized by the publishers of dictionaries. Steve Hartman reports on their efforts to put in a good word for “orbisculate.”

I learned the word on Words with Friends several days ago and jotted it down on my list of unusual vocabulary words. It’s great to see there’s a touching story behind it.

It's always surprising to me when folks don't realize that you're allowed to make words up. That's where all them other words came from - somebody made 'em up!

*hate to say it** but sex sells. It will take very little imagination for it to take hold in the proper Seinfeld/Harry Met Sally sitcom sketch. Your dad would be proud!🤣🤣🤣

It has always bothered me that people being introduced on TV aren't prepared to talk when the camera switches to them and they begin by smacking their lips before speaking. It's that smacking of the lips just before speaking that has always bothered me. Last night, while watching the the 2009 Movie 'Love Happens', I learned there's a word for smacking your lips. It's 'poppysmic' (pa' pee' smik'), n. the sound produced by smacking one's lips. Now, I can rant about doing that with authority! :)
