Halfbakery Neologisms

Members of the Halfbakery community might consider honoring their fellows— and themselves— in a way pertinent to their passions by incorporating their names into relevant new words. Ideally, words that reflect a particular attribute for which the subject may have become known.

Those coming first to mind include: unabubbablation, globaltourniquetiquette, dogedacious and juttalacrity.

Capitals have been eschewed in these examples for etymological soundness only. Lexicographers are well-known for small-thinking in re creative case-mixing.

The term "neologism" is employed here with regard to its prime definition: a newly coined word. Not the other which has something to do with the ravings of a lunatic.
