More Words from the World

Posted by dogtrax on February 20, 2008

Australian sixth-graders enjoyed the creation of new words so much that they began to invent their own to add to our Youth Radio list (see words from Germany and Massachusetts, USA, down below).

Here are their words and here are their voices:

Greenage: a green colour

Tracli : animals that climb or live in trees

Bool : boring, but cool

Delimbia: an unknown planet

Annoyzgonzola : someone who is annoying but you don’t know how to tell them

Hockle doodle doo: a really bad dancer

Cakeacola : cake with coke in it, or coke with cake in it

Hogglewoggle: a pig in a blanket

Abbracigiggles: someone on a bike who wears braces but instead of tyres they are pogo sticks

Chesstick: a person who loves chess

Mummarola: mum turning the TV off on your favourite part

We hope you enjoyed the words!

  1. Hello to the Wild About Australia group and welcome to Youth Radio. It’s exciting to watch the YR community grow – check out our ClutrMap – and to hear so many different voices.

    Hi kids in Australia!
    We enjoyed your new words. Bool is very bool- it’s bool that it mixes two words together. Something can be cool and boring at the same time- like a soccer/futbol game or school.
    We are a new batch of Digital Media Kids and want to make our own words now- look for them. We also like the music and want to add music to our recording the next time.
    Hasta la vista,
    The ASMadrid kids

    I love all your words but the one I love the most was mummarola. My mom always turns the TV off when my favorite part of a movie or show comes on. Listen to our podcasts from California! Bye

    I really enjoyed your new words. I found your podcast after finding information about blogs – we have just started a blog at our school and Podcasts are high on my “to do” list too.

    Well done.

    It’s really cool to listen to the exciting radio prog of the kids. It’s nice to know and hear that the young ones are interested in language in the first place-we thought that era is gone. However, one should exercise judiciousness in taking these words on board, giving them currency. Kids have the responsibility to learn words not to create words: for fun yes, but not mint them for wider use.

    Hello from Texas. I love your new words. I am a teacher and also a student in a Masters of Reading Program at a university. This gives me a lot of great ideas for my class. Keep up your good work!
