Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I think the phrase "congratuwelldone" should be added to this list. Made famous by David Walliams on "The big fat quiz of the year" 2006, it's fairly self explanitory - a cross between congratulations and well done You were great - congratuwelldone! Lets celebrate. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=congratuwelldone

It needs to be citable; see WT:ATTEST. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:36, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

There's one more blend for letter F: "freakonomics" Citation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freakonomics

Those aren't citations. Please read the link I listed above. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:01, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

"Blends"[edit]

Why is it called "blends"? "Portmanteaus" sounds more scholarly. "Category:English blends" makes it sounds like a list of tea or coffee drinks.

Normal users may find everyday English easier than "scholarly" words. Equinox 10:07, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
