Things There Should be words for...


There's a word for that

There’s a word for that

We are loving The New Dictionary of things there should be words for by John Lloyd and Jon Canter that has just hit our shelves……Here are some gems:

Brulange: the black dust scraped from burnt toast.

Chinley: gifted with the ability to use the lower jaw as a third hand when folding sheets.

Maesog: the feeling of having stepped in something wet while wearing socks.

Meon: a book you buy for your partner and end up reading yourself.

Yafford: a dog that walks its owner……

Do you have a made up word for something that should have a name?
