Welcome to WORDLY

wordly | ˈwərdlē | adjective 

( -lier , -liest )

1. That which contains many words:

The latest edition of WORDLY is so…wordly.

2. Concerning the prolific creation of new words, including the amalgamation of old words to make new words. 

The wordliest woman in history, neologist, Nancy Jenkins, coined over four thousand words, including: Posstempory (contemporary dance for possums), Deschep, Awkymo-mo (awkward moment), frinsel (frypan rinse), and quirkburger. 


wordliness noun

ORIGIN Old English worudlic (see word ,-ly).

These definitions came about as a result of my own wordliness.
They are as valid as my father’s assertion that a pigeon is genetically different from a dove. 

So what is wordly then?  If you ask my girlfriend, she will tell you it is when there are a lot of words on a page. A book for instance may be considered wordly. If you’re asking me personally, I think it is a state of mind, much like New York, according to Alicia Keys. It is the place where anything can exist as long as it is made out of words. In this world my father’s understanding of a pigeon may even be valid. Hey, I’m not saying it’s a perfect place, or even a particularly nice place, but it is a wordly place, which means that, whether you like it or not, you have arrived at a WORDLY destination. 

Now that the awkward Deakin Worldly pun (that you never saw coming) is out of the way I can pretend I am going to answer a few more of your questions, questions that drove you here like: why does that girl have a tongue on her back, and does she use it to French kiss? Why is the moon so forlornly and sexily out of proportion (or is it just me that thinks so), and why does it want WORDLY so bad? Well now I’m sorry I can’t answer all of those questions for you, but I can say this: there really is nothing like making out with a sexy lady’s shoulder blade…

Stay tuned for creative writings, definitions of words that might not exist (yet), the confessions of a self-diagnosed cat lady, reviews, opinions, drawings, comics, Lego avatars and other things we haven’t yet thought of. 

Until next time, 

read wisely, read WORDLY
