Hi! I'm Lauren. I'm American, I like Doctor Who, Parks and Recreation, Sherlock, Avengers, period dramas, nerdy things, movies, and things that look pretty. So I'm pretty unoriginal for this site. :) Feel free to get to know me!

“Noun is a playful artist’s book about words and their definitions. It is like an exquisite corpse with words.

Starting with 27 real English words, each word and its definition has been divided into two parts. By turning the pages, you get to mix and match the word halves to create humorous and nonsensical new words and meanings.

With over 700 different combinations, this book is the perfect item for bibiophiles, lexicographers, writers, and any lover of words.

Here are a few examples of words and definitions you can put together:

whisper + umbrella = whisbrella: A low sibilan utterance for sheltering one from rain and sun.

banana + onomatopoeia = bananpoeia: A large herbaceous perennial tropical plant that bears fruit imitating the sound of the thing or action signified.

muffin + tyrant = muffrant: A quick bread made of batter unrestrained by law or constitution.

nomenclature + ancestry = nomencestry: A system or set of names for things derived from, or possessed by, an ancestor or ancestors.”
