Invented Words from Spain

Posted by dogtrax on January 28, 2008

Our friends in Spain enjoyed the invented words from Massachusetts so much they decided to invent their own. Take a listen.

  • Zuny – a printer that does not work
  • Nert – an out in baseball when you do it with three foul balls
  • Malawool – a law that has to do with wool
  • Sapatum – when somebody is so excited about what they are doing and they start to go crazy and break things. My friend had a sapatum when we were playing our first soccer game in our team.
  • Panoranoia – a panoranmic paranoia. In the classroom there was panoranoia.
  • Emoke – see something that no one saw before
  • Mowan – an extremely crazy person
  • Mowanotang – a cross between a mowan (see above) and an orangutan. You are a mowan/mowanotang

How about you? What words can you invent?

    Hello friends from Spain
    I loved your words and I particularly enjoyed the word “emoke” because it means something entirely new has been discovered.
    Thanks for sharing here at Youth Radio.

    That is so cool that you made words by yourself! Like I said to the class in Massachusetts, it would be so cool if your words popped up in next years dictionary!!

    That was so cool and funny. My favorite word is “Emoke” because it kind of scary.

    Cool words!!! If i could invent a word it would be LOOLOO- having totally lost your mind…


  14. I work in my district’s Technology Services Department, so I can’t wait to refer to the pile of printers in need of repair as “zunies.” I’ll let you know if our techies get right away what I’m talking about.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hello I am from Australia I really liked the idea about the words. I think the words should be in the dictonary. This is my second day at school and it has been a lot of fun so far. WE are going to have a sleep over at school and we are also going to the pool.
