A new word from Thom

Dear Word Spy,

I have invented a new word. It's GLOGLUP.

One problem - I don't know what it means yet.

Any ideas?

yours faithfully,Thom

Dear Thom,

Great word! Um, let me think. GLOGLUP.

While I'm thinking, did you know that a brand new word that gets invented like this is called a NEOLOGISM? (That's ancient Greek for "new word". )


Maybe it could mean the sound a cat makes when it's gobbling up a bowl of tuna. What do you think?

yours thoughtfully, The Word Spy
