A keen example of a portmanteau nonce word now used in common parlance, this Carrollism combines chuckle and snort into a single delightful morpheme.

Originally a suitcase opening up into two separate compartments. Lewis Carroll was the first to apply it to words, via Humpty Dumpty discussing slithy in Jabberwocky. Other nice examples are spork and chortle (the latter also due to Carroll).
