A word!

Well, this is the most useful community I've seen yet.

Here's my word: neologist: Someone who invents new words.

See, so now you can say, "Hand me the panzokrats!" And when the other person says, "What!?" You can say, "Don't insult me! I'm a neologist!" And they'll think you're some kind of doctor.

neologist is a good word, I prefer panzokrats, though. It sounds interesting.

Does panzokrats have a definition? I wouldn't want to use it out of context.

panzokrats panzokrats panzokrats - i can't get enough of it...

pan: a pan... doh!
zo: not totally a zoo, half a zoo maybe?
krats: ugly animal-like peeps in tiny gray suits who work for some political party?

e.
hah! Most amusing! I hereby appoint you the keeper of the sacred word, PANZOKRATS! Use it how you wish, but never abuse its power! For it holds many dark secrets..
I promise to use PANZOKRATS when it's appropriate. I won't abuse it.
P.S. I like haiku a lot also, but it seems that most people in those communities don't know that a haiku has to be in the present, and has to deal with or mention nature in some way.
I know that... I just like to make "silly haiku(s)"

I don't think we're supposed to say haikuS since it's a Japanese word and Japanese words don't have plural.

?

e.
...maybe I should verify that but... my friends told me "don't say Haikus, it's wrong, no plural in Japanese"

!

e - *presently surfing the net to find the TRUTH!*

I was thinking about it, I think maybe it might be used to describe some class of people..like a plutocrat, or an autocrat, but this one, it is a PANZOcrat, with a K, so it is extra cheesy. Now, the key is unearthing who these strange panzo people are..
plutocrat, or an autocrat... Panzocrat now sounds Mexican to me.

does the word hypocrat exist?

I'm asking because I am French and I just think hypocrat is also a great word!

PS: are there other communities like this one?

:)
It does!
Hypocrat: One who belongs to a class of hypochondriacs?

oui!

I don't know, I just discovered this one actually, but I like it, and you are an interesting person yourself.
...interesting? moi? well I'll take that as a compliment!

I like words. It's an obssession.

PS: do you know this game called "cadavres exquis" in French, where you write a line then the other person writes another - you fold the paper & write the other line, and then on...? It's my favourite game (other than Illiterate Scrabble).
No, no..I haven't heard of that, explain more? And how does illiterate scrabble work?

I actually don't know French at all; but I do greatly enjoy French movies by the French director Godard!

And yes of course! Take it as a compliment! I like words a lot too. I borrowed this very interesting book actually, called The big book of beastly mispronounciations which is just as its title suggests.

a Panzer is a kind of tank, so maybe a Panzokrat could be a person who owns or produces said tanks.
That's a good one! I like it too (wish it came from me! lol)

e.
Ah..now we're getting somewhere!
