Global New Words Challenge
Now we've done Blog games. We've done Blog challenges. Now here's the ultimate way to change the world in reality.
The gentleman is James O'Brien who presents on my most favourite radio station in the whole wide world. LBC97.3FM is a speech radio station that is fun, not turgid and is a phone in station where any may phone in from across the world. Usual house rules apply. No swearing etc. It will google and you can listen on the web. Worth a try everybody.
Read the following instructions. Much much fun to be had here and nobody gets hurt. Nirvana to me!!
The new words challenge (copied from James' Blog)
You know how I love words, and all the fun you can have with them. Well now, I'm looking for your help in getting a brand new word into the English language. Over the past few days I've asked for your suggestions for new, made up words, and thanks for all your responses.
The key thing is they have to sound like a plausible word, but nothing specific. The idea is that we all start planting them in things we say and write, as if it were already a proper word, and the meaning should be obvious.
If you can get one of them into a letter to a newspaper, or an official document, or a radio phone-in, or an exam, or anything similar, you could win a prize.
Below is a list of our favourite ones so far, but keep your suggestions coming
Come on everybody let's find these words a home!
And hey check out the station. I'll be listening out for you!
