Wordsy Words

"What is she revenging for?"

is there something wrong with the statement? when i asked my officemates if it's the right grammar, they told me.. "is there such a word as revenging?" and i said yes. it's the act of revenge. so i checked google and a dictionary, and there's such a word. hehehe. still they insist that there isn't. until an officemate said: "there's such a word.. it's a tin-tin word."

there was also this one time when i replied to a text with a new word. and an older officemate asked if it's what the youth today uses.. a younger officemate just replied.. "no, tin-tin just invented that word." hehehe.

i love to invent words. hehehe. by placing suffixes such as -ish, -er, -ness, -ly, and all other suffixes. hahaha. most of the words i've invented are not planned.. such as the care of-care of. situation called for it. and also the words i invent, you can easily know the meaning. but some words i invented in purpose. like badder. promise! it's badder.. coz i was between bad and worse, so it's badder. hehehe. why do i invent words? just for fun. i don't know.. it's make it more fun to say these words. hehehe. unlike if i just use an ordinary word. hahaha. honestly, i am not conscious about it until someone will pinpoint or will use these words. hahaha.

**re revenging. i know i should have used avenging instead. but i prefer revenging.. it's like i will demand you in court. hehehe.
(note: tagalog word of sue is demanda, so some thought that the english term for demanda is demand)

carey said...

me too! I love making up words...isa na dun ang 'blogsy'. hehehe... mahilig kami ng sis ko to make words ending with the 'ee' sound like broeee (for bro), pinkeee, lappy (for laptop), etc. I think we got it from my niece who used to cry out before, "I want milkyyyy!!!" It makes conversations fun! :)

tin-tin said...

ate toe: "pres. gloria arroyo is the blankieth president of the philippines." if you write it it's like this:
pres. gloria arroyo is the ___th president of the philippines.

i'm sure someone will just fill in the blank. hehehe ;p

I once had a friend who always said "worser". For example, he'd say, "it would make things worser." I'm thinking, "hey, man, that ain't a word." hehehe

as for the sentence, naintindihan ko naman ang ibig nya sabihin but i guess it could coveyed in a more polished way...
