Paragoge

Paragoge (par-a-go’-ge): The addition of a letter or syllable to the end of a word. A kind of metaplasm.


My brainzini is pumping wisdom— going to smart man city. I got this word game called Wugwordy. It is fantasticated! Since I started playing, I’ve become a word-wise-ass. You may be wondering how to play.

Well, first you go to the on-line game site. Then, you get out your letter bucket. The bucket is filled with letters that you bought from Wugwordy. Next, you dump your letter bucket onto your I-Pad’s screen, completely covering it with letters. Then, you make five words from the letters you dumped on your screen. Finally, you take a picture of your words and post it on Instagram, with a brief caption taunting your friends. You are now one colossarola player, known around the internet for your Wugwordy prowess and the jealousy directed at you by your almost no longer friends.

Losing friends has always been the cost of superiority. Don’t worry, you’ll find other superior people and make new friends with. You can be superior with each other and address put downs to the non-superior people that you have to work with, and basically, inhabit the same planet with. “Lame Brain” is one of my favorite put downs. “Nit Wit” too.

Can you spell “Shit head?” You may be a Wugwordy wizard too!

Republican Healthcareless. That’s the essence of the Republican plan. Given their plan, clearly the Republicans could care less about the health and welfare of the American people. It’s shamefula you know what.

Metaplasm

Metaplasm (met’-a-plazm): A general term for orthographical figures (changes to the spelling of words). This includes alteration of the letters or syllables in single words, including additions, omissions, inversions, and substitutions. Such changes are considered conscious choices made by the artist or orator for the sake of eloquence or meter, in contrast to the same kinds of changes done accidentally and discussed by grammarians as vices (see barbarism). See: antistheconaphaeresisapocopeepenthesisparagoge, synaloepha.

Compared to “Mahmoud the Iraniac‘s” tirades against the US, Rouhoni’s overtures and phone call with Obama are encouraging!

Let’s just hope their future meetings aren’t like “Carrying carpets to Kerman” or “Carrying coal to Schuylkill”!

Togther, may they “Carry peace to the world”!
