Advance a Word Into the Presses!
The only way that a new word can be added to the dictionary is if that word is already being used by a considerable group of people. This means that many useful, silly, or time-saving words are rejected from formal print. I invite my fellow writers to present a word that they believe should be considered for the dictionary (and how it is used), so that we may begin using these words in our own writing, spreading its use. I look forward to seeing what new vocabulary I may obtain through this challenge.
To cranklefum is to fumble, trip, drop or break something, (or be generally clumsy,) as a result of frustration or crankiness.
1) If Sally doesn't settle down, she'll cranklefum the pie.
2) Jason cranklefummed big time; ended up breaking his favorite mug.
3) Mrs Frump is cranklefumming again. Better stay out of her way.
4) Sorry everyone, I'm just a bit cranklefummy today.
