Yes, I know you’re sitting there thinking what by the rotting carcasses of some very infamous dwarves does that mean?
Therein lies the entire premise, it means everything and nothing at once. Eggleschnooks is dictionary, of sorts, with words so bizarre they could mean anything. Every Wednesday a new word will be released, though the website, Facebook and Twitter, it is your aim to guess the meaning of the word.
The meaning of the word will be revealed the following Tuesday, the guess nearest to the word wins. What do they win, um… the knowledge that they are smart ass and have a very warped and twisted mind.
To start off we have Eggleschnooks, don’t worry we’re not going to make you wait on this one, this one is free.
Eggleschnooks (Eggle-Schn-ooks) – A book, or guide consisting of words that have no use and may well never be used again.
As for Azmanian Onkflap, well he is a rather weather beaten Ant Farmer from Bulgaria and wishes to remain anonymous at this point, well, other than having his name plastered all over the internet for the entire world to see.
There are of course lots unusual and odd sounding words already in existence, ,many of them can be found in Oxford Dictionaries, take cacoethes, do any of you know what that means? No, nor me until now, it means ‘an urge to do something inadvisable’, like this.
You might most frequently use a dictionary to double-check the spelling or pronunciation of a word, or to find a synonym for a common term. But sometimes you might want to learn a new and unfamiliar word – one which you probably won’t need in everyday conversation or writing, but which is fun, interesting, and unusual.
We love weird and wonderful, so get your thinking caps on and tell us what you think the words mean.
