Non

I was thinking the other day about non-words.

You know, words that sound like other words, but actually aren't.

Like,"supposibly"? That's a pretty common one.

And there are "punkins" at Hallowe'en and "sammiches" when you're hungry.

You know, non-words!

What are your favourites?

I love this. Since becoming a blogger, I've had a tendency to incorporate the word blog into everything, ie "blogtastic", blogify, etc. Non-words are a fun time!

Making up words is fine (moovie, for example) but using words which you think are real but should know better drives me nuts! Prolly. I hate when people write prolly. I hate when they say it too.
