Since I like her, and wish to protect her identity, I shall simply identify her as"Editrix" ...
Just started it and I’m not sure what the highlighted word is supposed to be in the following sentence:
"In fact, the S&P 500 went wobbly at the knees after blerrging out downright negative earnings news yesterday."
My reply –
That’s a word I made up. I do that sometimes. You don’t like it?
Sean, It’s not that I don’t like it. lol. But I checked with the editorial authorities that be and they overruled it. Do you have another word choice you’d like to go with?
My reply –
You know, Shakespeare made up more than 1,700 words, including “zany” and “madcap.”
Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky is a compendium of made-up words that are now in the English language.
I should be able to make up “blerrging.” It’s quite descriptive.
If our editorial authorities cannot handle it, then I take them for qualling, weather-bitten mammets. Nay, further, they are dull and muddy-mettled clotpoles. It’s their loss.
And in that case, use “vomiting.”
“Vomiting” it is. :-p
