Verbing Weirds Language

Because I’m such a fan of sites like The Slot and columns like Dave Barry’s Mister Language Person, it should come as no surprise that the current Slashdot poll, “Favorite Fictional Word,” caught my eye. Among the better missing options:

  • “misunderestimated”
  • “w00t,” of course, along with “pron”
  • “irregardless,” that timeless ear-grater
  • burninate
