  • Sincere and Serious make a marvelous couple don't you think?

  • a portmanteau word

    May 14, 2015

  • A word being used by actor/director Stephen Amell to raise money/awareness for charity campaigns. He defines it as:

    1. The ability to speak freely, openly and honestly about anything; if you're going to say something, say it sinceriously.

    2. To initiate any action while spreading as much good karma as possible.

  • So Stephen Amell defines "sinceriously" as 1) a noun ("the ability…") and 2) a verb ("to initiate…")? But its form suggests that it is in fact an adverb. And what is the difference between "sinceriously" and "sincerely"? Sincerity usually implies a serious attitude, doesn't it? This strikes me as just another worthless portmanteau that is neither sincere nor serious in intent.
