  • Because we've all been saying this word, and nobody had it listed. It's totally real, by the way.

  • Of course it's real! After all, I made it up, and I'm real! Case closed.

    Besides, no one ever puts madeupical words on Wordie. Ever.

  • Archive note: the very first mention of madeupical is at nounal. So in ages hence, all will see Wordie brilliance.

  • I just learned the word sniglet, which is a synonym for madeupical, and equally fun to say.

    October 26, 2007

  • I think sniglets were "invented" (maybe not) by Rich Hall, a 1980s-era comedian who used to be on Saturday Night Live. He put out a bunch of books of sniglets and stuff. Some of my favorites (that I still remember) were:

    motspur--the one wheel on a shopping cart that won't go the right way

    essoasso--a person who avoids a red light by cutting through a corner gas station

    blurfle--to be speaking loudly over music, as at a dance club, only to have the music stop suddenly just as you're saying something like "... testicles laminated!"

  • We need a pronunciation guide: this is my first time looking at this page, and I'd expected the pronunciation to be mad-yuu'pi-cal.

  • But it's a madeupical word, VanishedOne--how can we have a pronunciation guide for a madeupical word? ;-)

    November 8, 2007

  • Consult the originator?

    How can you not have a pronunciation guide for a word? Even if it's 'uncertain', on the model of Cthulhu, that's still information that permits a guide.

  • "Made. Up. Ickle." :-P

  • There we are: it can be done. Cheers. (Though I do like the Hellenic-sounding one.)
