Giving Meaning to New Words

February 1

Flangiprop!

Invent a definition for the word “flangiprop,” then use the word in a post.

 

So a creative task for the first day of the new month… I like it. I’ve got to give meaning to this word that’s never before had an official meaning. It’s gibberish you could say but I plan to change that. I am going to breathe a life and soul into this word although both life and soul could be the same thing.

 

Let us split the word up into small parts and try to find the root meanings that go with those associated letters.

 

We start with ‘fla’ which means ‘BLOW’ in Latin, for example, flatulence; to blow air from the hole in your bottom.

 

The letters ‘an’ are associated with ‘not’ and ‘WITHOUT’.

 

This one is a bit off considering we have the letters ‘gi’ in the word but the meaning I have found is with the letters ‘ge’ which represents ‘EARTH’ as in ‘geology’ or ‘geography’.

 

Then we have ‘prop’ which can mean’OWN’ ownership as in ‘property’.

 

If we were to put all these words together, we have:

 

BLOW

WITHOUT

EARTH

OWN

 

Based on my findings, I declare the word ‘flangiprop’ to mean ‘without blowing the land you own’.

 

So to use this in a sentence would be;

“A successful war is where one does not flangiprop”
