How to create a made up word

Advertising. Bloodstained. Cold-blooded. Epileptic. Fashionable. Hobnob. Moonbeam. New-fangled. Puking. Swagger. Worthless. Zany.

Those are just a sample of the many words William Shakespeare invented.

In fact, some say he invented somewhere between 1,700 and 2,200 words — possibly more. It’s no surprise the English language owes a massive debt to Shakespeare.

But Shakespeare doesn’t have a monopoly on inventing words. He wasn’t the first to do it, and he certainly wasn’t the last to create new words.

In fact, every year we introduce new words into the English language. Some fade out quickly, while others become part of the canon. Here are a few Oxford added to their online dictionary in 2015 alone:

  • Awesomesauce
  • Manspreading
  • Onboarding

But why make up words to use in your content marketing? Why not just stick with the ones we’ve got?

Good question. Fortunately, I’ve got an answer.

The reason is simple: to get people to stop what they are doing and pay attention to what you wrote.

Strange words will do that. Particularly in headlines.

Let’s look at five ways Shakespeare invented words that will help you invent your own words for your content.

1. Change nouns into verbs (verbing)

Playing around with words drives language purists nuts, because it’s lazy to table an idea or shoulder the blame.

But if you google “verbing,” you’ll realize this is a pretty common phenomenon and something we don’t need to be afraid of. Shakespeare certainly wasn’t.

Cleopatra said, “I’ll unhair thy head!” and King Lear complained, “the thunder would not peace at my bidding.”

2. Transform verbs into adjectives

When you break a step on a porch, it then becomes a broken porch. Or when you filter your water during a backpacking trip, you can then relax by the fire and enjoy filtered water.

And if your companion snores while he sleeps, you can kick him without fear of violating some law against assaulting snoring men.

These adjectives all originated with Shakespeare:

  • Barefaced
  • Blushing
  • Gloomy

3. Connect words never used together before

Many of the words you see in the introduction to this article are of this variety.

Connecting words is probably the easiest and most entertaining way to make up new words, as seen in modern examples like:

  • Afterclap
  • Cellfish
  • Youniverse

A method called portmanteaus blends the sounds and meanings of two words; blog is a truncated version of weblog (website plus log), and you also see this style in newer words like:

  • Chairdrobe
  • Screenager
  • Jeggings

4. Add prefixes and suffixes

The list of available prefixes and suffixes is long, which is one of the reasons the English language is extremely flexible.

The term for this is agglutination, and it creates words like:

  • Comedize
  • Declutter
  • Presidentiable

Shakespeare came up with:

  • Discontent
  • Invulnerable
  • Metamorphize

5. Invent the word you need

Certain words just come out of nowhere.

Thanks to Shakespeare, we have words like:

  • Addiction
  • Lonely
  • Manager

And thanks to courageous and creative souls, we can now say totes (totally) and noob (beginner).

Bonus tip: listen to things people say

Let me close with this: I’m accused of having bad hearing all the time. My lovely wife says one thing, and I respond with what I thought I heard.

She then asks, “Does that even make the least bit of sense given the context?”

“No,” I shrug, “Which is why I thought it was weird and entirely too funny that you said it in the first place.”

And then I tuck away the word I just created, thinking: That will make a headline happy someday.

So, what are your tricks for making up new words? Got any examples?

Are you, as a writer, limited to real words, words found in a dictionary?

You knew that already, didn’t you?

But have you hesitated about throwing a made-up word into your fiction, so worried about getting everything exactly right that you thought a faux word might brand you as unprofessional?

Don’t worry. Do create.

Yes, give us your made-up words; it’s quite all right. You already make up characters (maybe with unusual and never-heard-before names), towns or countries or worlds, political systems, religious practices, cultural events, animals, even non-human beings. You easily give names to each of these story elements, so why not also give names to words that have never existed before? Give us some new nouns and verbs and modifiers.

Shakespeare certainly did it. He apparently made up scores of words (though researchers have found fewer can be attributed to him than was first believed).

If the president of your space federation needs a word for vehicles that vacuum up rodents, shrink them, and then freeze them before transporting them to the next galaxy where they’re released at their normal size, give him a word for that vehicle.

If your sports announcer needs a word for a ball—baseball, football, or golf ball—that soars fluidly through the air and he wants to call it an aero-sphere, let him.

If your heroine cusses, but oh so delicately, give her a delicate profanity to match her sensibilities.

People make up words all the time. They may misspeak or they may simply connect words or letters they assume go together even when they don’t.

Whether your characters misspeak or they deliberately create a new word—and whether it’s them as the character or you as the writer coining a new word—you can most assuredly use new words and non-words in your stories.

If you’re looking for the poetic or the jarring or the humorous or just something sublimely apt—something that fits your sentence or character or style or genre or setting—write it. Create it. Make it up.

You are allowed to make up words. If not you, a writer, then who? Who better to create a descriptive word than the one who needs to describe a person? a place? an action? an emotion?

Novels and short stories aren’t school essays, where you’ll be graded down if you try to slip something imaginary past your teacher. This is creative writing. You are allowed to and encouraged to and expected to create. And that means at every level of your writing, down to the very basics. And that means words.

But what about clarity and meaning and communication?

Yes, you have to be clear. Yes, you have to communicate. Yes, the reader has to understand. And that’s where your other skills come in.

It’s your job to make clear even the unfamiliar so that readers immediately catch your meaning. Or you must make the unfamiliar at least clear enough that the meaning dawns on readers at just the right time.

Make the new words meaningful. Or make them fit the story’s tone or a character’s style. Make their use necessary for your story on at least one level and preferably several.

Keep in mind that made-up words, even the nonsense words of children’s stories, can deepen the unique feel of your fictional world, can give characters shared language that sets them apart from others in your stories or from characters in other books.

Name not only characters and locations but objects and practices and historical movements.

If your Eastern tribes practice prislex as a rite of passage but the practice has been outlawed by the Western tribes, with execution without trial as punishment for an infraction, prislex becomes an important word. A word doesn’t have to be real in our three-dimensional world; it only has to be real in your story world.

So, what can you do to create new words?

** You can make up words from nothing. If you like the sound or the look of the letters as they combine, simply create yourself a new word. Dourling, cryplat, briest.

Your made-up words can sound like something familiar or be completely fresh. They may be most effective when they aren’t merely a combination of random letters but combine into sounds that fit your world. Let rules of language—even if it’s a make-believe language—guide your imagination.

** Make nouns from verbs or verbs from nouns. Yes, you can verbalize nouns and nounalize verbs. Turn verbs into adverbs and adjectives.

** Combine existing words to create an obvious hybrid or portmanteau (brunch from breakfast and lunch or Microsoft from microcomputer and software).

** Attach traditional prefixes and suffixes to words that aren’t usually paired with them. Cokaphobic.

If you create new words, do check that they aren’t already words, especially not trade or brand names.

And know that you don’t have to make up words. You can write a wonderfully entertaining story with words familiar to every school child above a certain grade. Creating new words is an option, not an imperative. Look at it as one more way to create unique characters and stand-out fiction.

Make up new words and coin phrases if they fit your story. Don’t hold back out of fear yet be sure they work.

Use the unique to craft a story unlike any other.

Did God Create (Bara) or Make (Asah) in Genesis 1?

Abstract

Many people who have written on Genesis 1 have attempted to make a very significant distinction between two Hebrew words found there.

Keywords: create, bara, make, asah, theistic evolutionists, old-earth creationists, neo-Darwinism, exegesis, Hebrew, Genesis

Many people who have written on Genesis 1 have attempted to make a very significant distinction between two Hebrew words found there: bara ( בָּרָא , to create) and asah ( עָשָׂה , to make or do). Theistic evolutionists (TEs) and old-earth creationists (OECs) both accept the millions of years advocated by the scientific establishment (although the OECs do not accept neo-Darwinian evolution while TEs do). They sometimes try to defend the acceptance of millions of years by saying that bara refers to supernatural creation ex nihilo (Latin for “out of nothing”) but that asah means to make out of pre-existing material and therefore allows for creation over a long period of time. Such people say that the only supernatural creation events were in relation to the heavens and the earth ( Gen. 1:1 ), sea creatures and birds ( 1:21 ), and Adam and Eve ( 1:27 ). Since asah is used for all other creative acts in Genesis 1, those acts could have been creative processes over the course of millions of years.

But this argument will not stand when we look carefully at the use of these words in Genesis 1 and in other biblical passages related to creation. Compare these two lists:

Bara: to shape or create Asah: to do or make
Gen. 1:1 created the heavens and earth Gen. 1:7 made the expanse between the waters above and below
Gen. 1:21 created the sea creatures and birds Gen. 1:16 * made the sun, moon and stars
Gen. 1:27 * created man (both Adam and Eve) Gen. 1:25 made all land creatures
Gen. 2:3 * created and made all His works Gen. 1:31 all that He made
Gen. 2:4 created heavens and earth Gen. 2:3 * all His works which God created and made
Gen. 5:1 created man (both Adam and Eve, cf. 5:2) Gen. 2:4 * made heaven and earth
Gen. 5:2 created male and female Gen. 3:1 made the beasts of the field
Ps. 89:47 created all the sons of men Gen. 3:7 made loin clothes from fig leaves
Ps. 104:30 created sea creatures Gen. 3:21 made garments from animal skins
Ps. 148:5 * created heavens, heights, angels, hosts, sun, moon, and stars Gen. 5:1 * made man (referring to both male and female)
Is. 40:26 * created stars Gen. 6:6 * made man
Is. 40:26 created trees, rivers Gen. 7:4 * destroy every living thing that I have made
Is. 54:16 created the blacksmith and the destroyer Gen. 9:6 * man made in the image of God
Ps. 121:2 * made the heavens and the earth
Ps. 104:24 * made the sea, sea creatures, and land animals
Is. 41:20 * done this, made the trees and rivers
Is. 43:7 * made, created, and formed man
Is. 45:18 * made, formed, established, and created the earth

The question before us is whether God’s “creating activities” and “making activities” in Genesis 1 are categorically different kinds of events or processes. From these verses above we can note the following:

  1. The * after the verses above indicates those entities that God is said to have both “created” and “made.” Bara (create) and asah (make) are used interchangeably in the Bible in reference to the creation of the following: the sun, the moon, the stars, sea creatures, trees, rivers, man, the heavens, and the earth. In several verses they are even used together to describe the same event.
  2. The plants were neither “created” nor “made,” according to the words used in Genesis 1:11-13 . But clearly (from passages such as Gen. 2:1-3, Ps. 33:6-9, Ps. 148, Heb. 11:3 , etc.) they were created and made by God’s Word on the third day, even though God did not use these particular words to describe His actions. There is no basis in science or Scripture for saying that vegetation came into existence by purely natural processes but that everything else was created supernaturally. In fact, the formation of the first plants was clearly supernatural, for they were made as mature plants with fruit already on them.
  3. Bara does not always mean to create out of nothing. God created the first male and female humans ( Gen. 5:2 ). But we know from Genesis 2:7 that God formed ( יָצַר , yatsar) Adam from the dust of the earth and in Genesis 2:22 we are told that God fashioned ( בָּנָה , banah) Eve from the rib of Adam.

So, making a strong distinction between bara and asah in Genesis 1–2 is as unjustified as making a distinction between “create” and “make” in English. It is true that in Scripture only God is the subject of the verb bara; men make (asah) things, but only God creates (bara).1 But God also makes (asah) things. The verbs alone cannot tell us how God created and how long He took to create.

No distinction can be made between these Greek words in reference to Creation week.

New Testament references confirm this understanding when describing the creative work of our Creator, Jesus Christ. For example, John 1:3 says that all things came into being ( ἐγένετο , egeneto) by the Word of God, who is Jesus Christ ( John 1:14 ). Colossians 1:16 says that all things were created ( ἐκτίσθη , ektisthay) by and for Christ. Hebrews 1:2 says He made ( ἐποίησεν , epoiaysen) the original creation by His Word (cf. Heb. 11:3 ). “Come into being,” “create,” and “made” in these passages are clearly referring to the same divine activities in Genesis 1 and 2. No distinction can be made between these Greek words in reference to Creation week. These Greek words in these texts are in the aorist tense. None of these words by themselves connote any specific time frame other than that, in these cases, they refer to completed past action. They cannot be interpreted to mean that the processes are still going on (which would require a different Greek verb tense—present tense). Therefore, they disallow an evolutionary meaning, since evolution is said to be a process that is continuing today.

Conclusion

This short study shows that there is no basis for saying that bara only means an instantaneous, out-of-nothing, supernatural creative action but that asah only means a slow, out-of-existing-material, natural process of making (under God’s providence, of course). In the creation account ( Genesis 1:1-2:3 ), both words are used in reference to ex nihilo creation events, and both are also used in reference to things God made from previously created material.

What is the difference between ‘create’ and ‘made’? To have created something is the same thing as having made something. The words are synonyms, but there are differences in the words and circumstances when it would be better to use one word over the other. To understand when to use ‘create’ or ‘make’, it is first necessary to understand more about where the words came from.

‘Make’ is a very common verb in English. It is often found in collocations and verb phrases, such as ‘to make dinner’. It means to form something by putting parts together or combining substances, as in constructing something. For example: She made lemonade by mixing lemon juice with water and sugar. Along with that definition, it can also mean to cause something to come into existence or to formulate something. For example: If you join three lines together, it makes a triangle. It can also be used in a less concrete sense, as in bringing about a particular situation. For example: Our mean neighbor made trouble between us. ‘Made’ has one other, more abstract meaning, as in reaching, succeeding in, attaining or getting something. For example: We made it home before it began to rain.

‘Made’ is the past form of ‘make’, but it can be used in a unique sense. That is in the past form used to mean made or formed in a particular place. For example: These shoes are Italian-made. Commonly a hyphen connects the place and ‘made’. It can also mean made or formed using a particular process, as in the common compound word, homemade. Another example: The pie is machine made, but it tastes homemade.

‘Create’ is a verb that means to bring something into existence or cause something new to exist. For example: He created this bookshelf all by himself. It can also have a less literal meaning, as in to bring about or cause a situation as a result of one’s actions. For example: He created this mix up, and now everyone is confused. In this sense, it is very similar to the word ‘make’, and is considered a synonym. While make can mean simply putting things together to construct something, it can mean to bring something new into existence, as well.

The difference in the usage of the words lies in the meaning of create to mean producing something new or original by using one’s talents, imagination or skill. This is usually in the form of something that would be considered artwork. For example: She created this masterpiece oil painting. Although ‘made’ could be used, it does not convey the same nuance of specialness or newness that ‘create’ does. This usage is the result of the etymology, or where the word came from. It came from the late Middle English and had the sense of forming something out of nothing, especially from a divine or supernatural being. This is in the sense we commonly use the related words ‘creation’ and ‘creature’ meaning things we believe that were brought into existence by God, or ‘created’.

Microsoft Word is one of the most popular word processing programs used by computer users. Word can open text (.txt) files, rich text format (.rtf) files, XML (.xml) files, web page (.htm or .html) files, and all Word (.doc, .docx, .docm, and more) files.

To open any of these files in Microsoft Word, including files created and saved in Word, you can use any of the options below.

Double-click file

In some cases, you can double-click a file to open it in Microsoft Word. However, the file only opens in Microsoft Word if that file type is associated with Microsoft Word. Word documents, like .doc and .docx files, are associated with Microsoft Word by default. However, web page files, text, and rich text format files are often not associated with Word by default, so double-clicking these files may open in another program.

To change the program associated with a file, see: How to associate a file with a program in Windows.

Right-click file and select program

For any file, you can choose the program to open a file with, including Microsoft Word.

  1. Right-click the file you want to open.
  2. In the pop-up menu, select the Open with option.
  3. If available, choose the Microsoft Word program option in the Open with menu. If Microsoft Word is not listed, select the Choose other app or Choose default program option, depending on the version of Windows on your computer.

How to create a made up word

  1. In the window that opens, find Microsoft Word in the program list and select that option. Microsoft Word should open and the file opened within Word.

Here’s a rundown on all the various HTML font size codes you can use to make text bigger or smaller on your web pages.

First of all, you can designate the text size on your web page using the ‘size’ attribute in the HTML font element code. If no size is defined for text on a web page then the web browser will display the text at size 3.

The value that you enter for the size attribute is a number representing any one of seven different relative sizes. These number 1 through 7 respectively. These are the results you will get when specifying the size attribute:

into your tag where font size equals any number from 1 to 7.

size=”4″ > Your visible text goes here and will look like this.

Alternatives

Another way of designating your text size is to enter a number from 1 through 4 which either adds or subtracts from your basefont size. In the absence of a basefont declaration, the default basefont is size 3. By entering a value of “+1” for the size attribute you designate your text to be displayed one size bigger which then equates to size 4. Likewise a value of “+2” equates to font size 5. Going in the other direction, a value of “-1” equates to size 2 and “-2” equates to size 1 (basefont size 3 – 2 = font size 1).

Many WSYIWYG editors produce source code using this system of font sizing. This should help explain things if you ever decided to take a peek at the source code while using a WYSIWYG editor and subsequently wondered what all that “+2” and “-1” stuff was about.

Still another way of defining your text size on a web page is to use the big and small font style elements. This system works very similar to the size=±1 system in that using one set of . tags equates to one size bigger while using one set of . tags equates to one size smaller.

Hence, if you were starting from a blank web page with no formatting applied yet (default basefont size 3), the following three examples will produce identical results:

size=”4″ > Same as it ever was.

size=”+1″ > Same as it ever was.

Same as it ever was.

Nesting a pair of . tags one within the other and using this to format text has the same effect as rendering the text two sizes bigger or, in effect, using the size=”+2″ attribute-value pair with the font element.

Hence, the following three examples will produce identical results:

size=”5″ > Three of a kind all over again.

size=”+2″ > Three of a kind all over again.

Three of a kind all over again.

Many WYSIWYG editors use this big/small font sizing system as well. This is one of the drawbacks of using these ‘instant cakemix’ web authoring programs. They can at times produce some very bloated and messy source code. Using one of these programs, when the user highlights the text he wants to make really big and then clicks four times on the make-text-bigger button (quite often denoted by an a+ button on the user interface), the resulting source code will look like this:

This is rendered much easier by simply putting:

Your really big text.

An even more ridiculous scenario is produced when the WYSIWYG user highlights some text he would like to make bigger and then, for example, clicks three times on the make-text-bigger button but then later changes his mind and decides some previously typed text would be better at the original size. So then —often unaware of what he is really creating behind the scenes in the source code— he goes back, highlights that text and clicks three times on the make-text-smaller button producing a bunch of source code that is a complete waste of space:

No sizing will be applied to this text.. . while this text will appear at size 6.

This is exactly the same as simply putting:

No sizing will be applied to this text. . while this text will appear at size 6.

Once you’ve tried to debug a web page stuffed to the gills with this kind of useless source code á la etcetera, ad nauseum, you may give some second thoughts as to how “easy” some WYSIWYG editors really are.

So what size text should you use? This is partly a matter of taste and partly a matter of necessity and can also depend on what font style you use.

Text that is too small can be difficult and sometimes even impossible to read (Arial size=”1″).

On the other hand, text that is too big can have the effect of ‘shouting’. This can turn viewers away from your web page, especially if the whole page is filled with text like this (Arial size=”6″).

Most web page authors tend to hang around the size 3 – size 5 range for normal reading purposes (depending on the font style) but may increase the font size for headers and titles.

How to create a made up word

Find your putter’s sweet spot to ensure a solid strike.

Most three-putts occur not because you hit the ball so far off line, but because you either left the first putt too short, or left yourself a come-backer that was too long.

Part of having good distance control is learning how to hit the putter’s sweet spot. Many newer putter models include a line to indicate where the sweet spot is located, but if your putter doesn’t have a sweet spot line, you’ll have to find it yourself.

How? It’s easy. Take a quarter, or even a finger tip, and while holding the putter shaft with one hand, gently tap on the putter head to push it back slightly.

How to create a made up word

Finding you putter’s sweet spot will help you hit more solid putts.

You’ll notice if you tap the putter on the outer edges, its path will be turned slightly. When the head swings straight back and straight through you’ll know you found the sweet spot. (Hint — it should generally be near the middle of the clubface!)

Once you’ve located the sweet spot, you can work on honing your stroke. Take two wooden matches and tape them about two inches apart on each side of the sweet spot.

How to create a made up word

Use matches to help you hit the sweet spot.

Now, try hitting a few putts, without letting your ball make contact with the matches.

If you hit the matches and not the sweet spot, you’ll notice the ball will veer offline. Once you become proficient at hitting solid putts with the matches two inches apart, move them closer and closer together until you get to a point where you’re hitting the sweet spot consistently without using them as guides.

Work on this drill consistently, and your putting distance control will improve drastically, making three-putts a thing of the past.

Citation (From Wordnet)

Using this website is very simple. Simply copy and paste a list of words into the text box. Your list can be in virtually any format. Our heuristic algorithm will extract the words from the list you give us. For example you may have a list like:

1. edify-
2. predilection-
3. avant-garde-
4. paragon-
5. 10-membered-

edify, predilection; avant-garde-, paragon,10-membered-

To see the generated list, you can either click the ‘generate’ button found below your word list, or you can select ‘List’ from the tabs on the top. Our program will extract “edify”, “predilection”, “avant-garde”, “paragon”, and “10-membered” and look them up for you.

If you want to look up a word with 2 or more components such as “computerized axial tomography scanner”, simply type in “computerized-axial-tomography-scanner” and we can interpret this appropriately.

After that is done, we offer the list to you in its entirety for download as a word document, for viewing on the website itself, or for emailing to yourself.

Under the ‘Extras‘ tab, you can look up synonyms, quiz yourself, download flashcard as well as quizzes.

Also don’t forget about our advanced options (located under the text box in the home tab) which give you options such as alphabetizing and numbering your list. You can specify the maximum number of definitions for each word and whether or not to randomly pick these definitions from the dictionary (for example picking 2 definitions out of a possible 10).

QuickDefine is our cool new feature that offers a maximum of 2 definitions per word with the click of a button (under the List tab).

This program recognizes any of these delimeter(,:;-#).

WordScram is a word puzzle game! Each player takes turns trying to make words out of a collection of randomly-picked letters. You can only use each letter only once, and the word must be in English.

For example, if the some of the letters were: DTOGACEH , you could make the words: cat, dog, ache, tag, got, get, head, and so on, but not words like: dad, taste, dead, dogs, etc.

If you choose to play a timed game, you’ll have exactly 60 seconds to enter your words, or you won’t get any points for your attempt! Longer words give many more points. A scoring screen will appear explaining what words received what points. (Note: Some browsers will reset the clock digits when you scroll! Be careful!)

Wait for the following sentence to load. after the graphics have been cached, the game will run much faster
