One of the coolest aspects of language, any language, is the creativity and productivity of its speakers. Language allows you to express the abundance and infinity of your thoughts with any combination of sounds you want. And if there is no word for something you want to say, you simply create that word on the spot and start using it to mean what you want it o mean. And that’s pretty much the story of every word in the dictionary. People create all sorts of words for different reasons but a tiny few make it to a dictionary. They say that a word gets added to a dictionary every two hours. But I have no idea why these haven’t made it to any dictionary despite being the coolest words I have ever seen. They are perfect examples of what is called portmanteaus; mashing both the sounds and meanings of two words together to get a new one. So, here are 30 words that should actually be added to a dictionary because they are just cool.
