I received this definition from a friend’s website newsletter, Talking About.  It listed the results from the Washington Post’s 1998 Mensa Invitational competition, which involved the creation of new words, by playing with combinations of other words.  To see the original list, click here (it also explains the interesting history behind this). If you like playing with words, the website also has an annual competition to create new words. You can view their 2010, 2011 results as well as entering for 2012.
