The art of “PORTMANTEAU”.

James Murray

For those of you uncertain as to the proper pronunciation, it’s “Port-Man-Toe” in the written Ebonics herunterladen. Carrying on, the dictionary will simply describe Portmanteau as a word or morpheme whose form and meaning are derived from a blending of two or more distinct forms icloud foto's download iphone. (I say that with complete certainty because the bulk of that last sentence was a direct cut and paste from a dictionary website.) The most common example of this one could argue is the word “Smog” as it originates from “Smoke” and “Fog” wie kann man videos von youtube downloaden. So many of these words have found their way into our everyday dialog, including more recent additions such as; “Bootylicious” or “Guesstimate” fotocollage gratis downloaden. Even when first presented with one of these words its meaning is so very often intuitive. Rarely is a definition required to help a new user successfully adapt it into their vocabulary minecraft app android kostenlosen.

As many of the other Gents will attest to, I have on occasion found myself “Unscrupivised” with cbdoilkaufen.com herunterladen. As to say, I was both without adequate scruples and adequate supervision to make an appropriate decision. (I must of course state that many of those occasions came while pursuing my studies in Mixology with Gentleman Lee Dunteman rolling sky kostenlos herunterladen. Who as it turns out, was also unscrupivised.) I would further put forth that when you first read the word unscrupivised, you had a “Quimsical” look upon your face blumenbilder downloaden. Would you not agree that the expression would have conveyed both your questing of the word and how whimsical it sounded to you? As I do realize that I stated that defining such words was unnecessary, I did so simply to help you feel certain in your application and confident in your future use of these and other Portmanteaus that you may encounter as you progress through life spiel cossacks kostenlos downloaden.

In general, remember that there is an art to language and regardless of practicality, art is always necessary. Revel in the ability to share concepts and ideas windows 10 installer herunterladen. While not everything will be Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, thankfully, it can be more than a little amusing to give voice to your thoughts. You don’t have to be a Shakespearian Actor or a Used Car Salesman to benefit from a rich vocabulary and keen awareness for body language. Embrace the need to express and open yourself to those around you. (As much too how something is said as to what was said.) You can only grow and better yourself for it.

Cheers!

Woodford Makes It Right

woodfordI’m happy to report that our campaign asking Woodford Reserve Bourbon to publicly disavow an affront to mixology made in their name has reached the ears of those at the company itself steam demos herunterladen.

I received the following correspondence from the good people at Woodford, who are, apparently, as appalled as the rest of us at the maltreatment of their delicious spirits and maligning of the good name of the Mint Julep herunterladen. All of our products are treated differently, some are store in cold and other are on a special heat treatment to maintain the ambiance of the storage rooms hogwarts mystery downloaden.
