Stormhaven: "Making Up Words"
Posted: Friday August 13th, 2010 by

A few days ago -right in the middle of talking about Billy Mitchell and Fan Faire- Stormhaven tossed out another idea. There seemed to be no real motivation for it. It just kind of sprang forth from a mind that I can only assume is fevered. I'm not 100% certain, I think she just wanted to say "automagically".

Or maybe it extended from her tendency to type "nop" instead of "nope". Her reasoning? "The 'e' is all the way over there!" Yes, that's a quote.

As for me, you guys already know how much of a purist I am when it comes to putting new words into the dictionary. Sure, I understand that the english language is fluid. I just need a better reason to consider slang or narrow-use colloqualisms to be dictionary worthy. That's not too much to ask is it?

Which brings us back to "automagically". Despite my response in our conversation (and the resultant inclusion in the comic), I can tolerate it as a possible dictionary inclusion much more readily than something like "noob" or "d'oh".

All that woody-whining aside, what's your favorite slang word/phrase. Keep it clean, huh?
