A Word Is Born: Compliquery!

Illustration for article titled A Word Is Born: Compliquery!

I asked, you answered! The results of last week's poll is conclusive. "Compliquery" is the new term to describe the phenomenon of complimenting stuff and asking where she got it, (29.8%) narrowly beating out you curmudgeonly grammatical killjoys who are sick of the crazy kids and their portmanteau words (28.7%). Now, remind me to use it.




I was at a party and someone gave someone a compliquery and I told everyone what she'd done and what the name was. Everyone approved. There was much rejoicing.
