The newest words we’ve learned in a natlang

Post by eldin raigmore »

What word or words have you just recently learned in a natlang?

Mine are
Circumappendiceal Somectomy
(from https://xkcd.com/2508/)

….

I thought there was already a thread on the CBB for members’ most recent acquisitions to their personal lexicons of natlangs.
But I looked for it and couldn’t find it. (I looked for newest and/or latest and/or recent.)

If a mod or an admin can figure out where to move this I will appreciate it!
A better title might be welcome too!

apodictic .... it came up in a ZBB thread recently. I heard the word **many** years ago in a faux academic context on a children's TV show, but I mentally parsed it as "apple-dictic" and as i grew up i figured it might have just been a nonsense word.

🤷maybe we can repurpose this thread for English words only then? Our only two examples so far are.

Yes!
If I searched for “last” or “most” I got too many hits or “search term omitted because it’s too common” or something.

or maybe repurpose that thread to include English?

Actually I think it already includes English provided it’s an L2 for the contributor.
So maybe I should suggest that one of the threads include the contributors’ native language?
Edit: Isn't my post about “nudiustertian” about an English word?
I guess it’s an ink horn word, and/or a neologism; and certainly derived from Latin.
But I think it’s still English!

Oh.

I just remembered that I had listed the Japanese wana as one such word in that thread and searched for "wana".

Maybe . . .

1. Last new word you learned in your L1
2. Last new word you learned in a foreign natlang
3. Last new word you learned in someone else's conlang

Btw does the following word prove English could become polysynthetic?
Y’all’d’ve’f’I’d’ve
Meaning
You all would have if I would have.

Scrannel.

While googling "scrapper conlang", I found a webpage with a long list of English words. Nearby "scrapper" were "scrappy", "scrapie", and . . . "scrannel". What's "scrannel"?

Inquisitively I googled.

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/scrannel


It could even work in a song:

I saw you on the MTV channel
When I saw you, I thought, "This man'll
Look good in flannel
Like Matt Scannell"
But your music is completely scrannel
You should be the Music Geek on the Beat the Geeks panel

You’re right!
Incidentally, the contraction "y'all've" provides a rhyme for "olive", often said to be rhymeless.
