2-in-1 Blend Words

How to create new nouns in English

A good friend of mine has recently invited me to a conference on ‘’knowledgement’’ – “Don’t scold me for that”, she said. “I know my nouns in English but this is a blend word we really like to use.”

My friend’s remark amused me and made me think of Alice in Wonderland and words that are twofold: blend words. Aren’t they miraculous? The beauty of English makes it possible to say two words with one effort. For example, smog (smoke + fog) workaholic (work + alcoholic) brunch (breakfast + lunch) artivist (art + activist), webinar (web + seminar).

Blend words fill a gap in our vocabulary and this gives them the power to stand the test of time. Hence, how many times do you think we’ve felt “mimsy” (“miserable and flimsy”), as Lewis Carroll famously wrote?

If you want to try out your blend words skills, you can play Hangman here:
