It is time, once again, for New words to live by. This is a word or phrase not currently in use in the U.S. English lexicon, but might need to be considered. Other words, such as obsurd, crumpify, subsus, flib, congressed, and others, can be found by clicking on the tags below. Today’s New Word is a compounding of two nouns into a new word. Without further waiting, utteration (utter + iteration) and its verb form utterate are the new words for this month.
Utter, v. 1. To give audible expression to; speak or pronounce. 2. To express oneself with voice or in written / printed form, especially in words. 3. To make publicly known.
Iteration, n. 1. The act of repeating; a repetition. 2. A repetition with a minor variation.
Utteration, n. 1. To utter over and over and over again the same words or phrase or sound, especially as if saying them makes them appear to be true.
Utterate, v. The act of uttering over and over and over again the same words or phrase or sound, especially as if saying them makes them appear to be true.
A certain U.S. presidential candidate who utterates he’s going to build a wall along the Mexican border and is going to make the Mexicans pay for it, and that the wall will keep undocumented immigrants out of the United States. And because he is, a judge of Mexican decent can’t officiate at a trial that involves one of the candidate’s many failed enterprises.
[Editor’s note: yes, this example is the same as last month’s, showing that such utterations are hyprocrassy.]
