New competition by Ken Dunn on 13 February 2013 6:36pm
 
Spell and define a new word.

This competition is going to run for a while or until there is a significant number of new words. Towards the end of the competition a panel of judges will be set up and we will try to get the new word accepted by the OED (Oxford English Dictionary)! These rules may change at my discretion.

I have seen new words defined elsewhere in palinstravels and these are acceptable in the competition.

I'll start with this one:

VOCIFEROCIOUS - A loud complaint which is incorrect. A person who complains loudly and wrongly is a vociferocious person.

Shopstration.

The feeling you get when you return fron the supermarket with piles of stuff and realise that you forgot the one thing you went for in the first place.

Great posts kazzzz. It's hard to decide but I think I like your shopstration best because it sometimes happens to us too, perhaps not quite so severe as you have described.

Grammarstration - The feeling one gets when trying to decide whether to use a comma, semicolon, colon or full stop in a piece of text.
