word of the day

portmanteau word -

'Word blend of two other words. I had to chortle (chuckle + snort) while brunch (breakfast + lunch) in the smog (smoke + fog)'.

If you know of a portmanteau word, we'd like to know it.

* Quoted from Reader's Digest, Oct 2008, Asia.

Tanzania is a portmanteau, stemming from the names of the African republics of Tanganyika and Zanzibar.
