  • Once a word has been kenspeckled I own it for life.

  • I only 'riffed' on the use of protologism as a word, not the protologism at hand itself.

  • Having people riff on your protologism tip without giving credit. Sad!

  • ...which, of course, one does to feel that oh-so-protological sensation of metaeuphoria. Ain't it great? As for me, I'm stuck with euphoria 1.0. Shucks.

  • Now you're just showing off.

  • Note that the word metaeuphoria is a protologism with aspirations of someday becoming a neologism, though its usage remains limited at best. In fact, it lacks meaning because it has no contextual use whatsoever. If anything, it's barely hypertextual through its self-referential mentions at metaeuphoria.com (and now at wordie.org).

    As a chance linguistic commingling between the prefix meta and word euphoria, you have a state which can only be described as beyond common or everyday euphoria (if only there were such a condition). Any more elucidation requires far keener disambiguation.
