Am working late and in need of a brain-break.
As such, decided to expound upon the glorious creation of deviant words. Now, as some may know, I abhor buzzwords and jargon - new words that lack creativity and add limited or no meaning to our depleted English language. However, and with equal or perhaps greater fervor (forgive me for my zealous opinion), I delight in the creative manipulation of vocabulary that adds innovation and meaning.
To this end, my witty co-worker Jerry and myself have, in manner of nerdful technical writers, begun to post Words of Week on slimline, mac-esque, beautiful whiteboard posted in portrait mode in our office. With no further distortion of elaboration, behold the word juices of February.......
The first word to be coined by myself while in residence at Tecplot. Used typically to describe a certain shade of Seattle weather, this word incorporates the meaning of drippy, dismal, dreary and (d)rainy. Specifically, used to describe the extreme state of non-description of the previously stated adjectives.
Descriptively used by both, first prescriptively used by Jerry, acts as a disgusted or incredulous cry in response to statement, events, or circumstances that make no sense; further, that you do not even wish to be explained.
Example: [Insert ridiculous statement by The Internets here.]
Usage note: Should be spoken in a low, monotone, almost robotic voice, with as little expression as possible.
plethorate (verb; also infinitive: to plethorate)
Coined inadvertently in conversation by a member of our company who shall remain nameless through no fault of their own, this creative verb describes the procreation tendencies of inanimate objects that generate meaningless material.
Example: "The documents on our shared drive tend to plethorate."
Usage note: Do not make the mistake of thinking of this word as a piece of office jargon. It does not qualify, for it a) adds meaning, b) shows a creative spirit, and c) does not injunct the use of sports or other outside world events which, by their use, make office workers feel that they are living in the "real world".
troublic transport (noun phrase)
The particular species of transport popular on the western coast of North America, although spotty in population within a particular region, is in no danger of dying out. Refers to the inconsistent and untraceable patterns of transport meant for public use which, despite best efforts, elude common understanding and attempt to introduce as much chaos and wasted time as the transport deems profitable. Suspected to feed on angst felt by passengers waiting at empty transport stations, stops, and waiting areas.
