I have just discovered somthing about language that I find interesting.

I like to discover that there are names for things that we do with language without knowing that they have names.

When one takes two words and combines them together to make one word, it is called a “portmanteau“.

I have done this rather affectionately to Crotch and his girlfriend with the help of a Japanese friend that I have.

Scoffree that’s me, that is!
