Writing Challenge: Invent a Word (failaughy, kitchild, lovennoyed, windin)

failaughy | adjective | / feilɒːfɪ /

describes someone who has a joke so poorly told and so unfunny that one cannot help but laugh. Someone who seeks for an attention by making a joke, but the joke is totally failed. Otherwise, friend or people around will laugh at him/her, at the lack hilarity of a joke, not because of his/her funny joke. Original word: JAYUS.

Example: A thief told the police a failaughy witnesseth. "Hey, how many sheep you have stolen?" "One" "But these are three sheep" "Oh, these two are its lambs, they followed after it"


failaughter | noun | / feilæf·tər /

a laughter that came out from a corny or unfunny joke of his/her own.

Example: I really miss his failaughter. He said he would jump over the sea just to meet me. 


kitchild | adjective, noun | / kɪtʃaild / 

(adj.) describes the kind language that is too informal and disdained by people, usually refers to written language. The writers of kitchild language don't care about the proper contraction. They embellish or abbreviate the language to be excessive by their own creativity. For the most excessive usage, it is written in a mixture of small and large fonts or even with number like "a1 r3ALLy luPh yU (I really love you)". This makes "castes" in language, with them being at the bottom caste. Original word: ALAY.

Example: Hey! Don't use kitchild language, please! I can't bear reading your written text nor even understand at all. 

(noun) describe a person with shabby appearance and uneducated impression, mostly refers to male who fits the description. He usually wears an excessive or peculiar clothes and/or attributes and he thinks he is stylish, like an artist who's performing on the stage. 

Example: Seeing kitchilds in a big city is not a surprise anymore. They usually just hang around aimlessly.


lovennoyed | adjective | / lʌvə'nɔɪd /

A mix feelings of intense love and hate. Describe the intense feeling when you see something or someone that is so adorable and cute that you can't help but want to squash them. Sometimes it is because of what someone has done. It tends to love rather than hate or anger. lovennoying (adj.) has the same sense. Original word: GEMES.

Example: His action made her felt so lovennoyed with him. It is lovennoying to see a chubby baby.


windin | noun | / wɪndɪn /

A situation where you feel bloated and gassy (flatulence) BUT not because of something you eat. It's because you stay up late or you didn't eat enough food that day or because the weather is too windy and cold or you're too long being outside at night. Original word: MASUK ANGIN.

Example : After chatting with him all night, I've got windin today.


The original Indonesian words: jayus, alay, gemes, masuk angin. :D

Thank you very much for appreciating my efforts dear. Yes, somehow I'm always serious in English although I also use some humor or kidding stuffs. I just want to make it interesting. :))

Btw, sometimes, I used some search first before correcting others. :)) Thanks a lot for encouraging me. I also learn from there. 

Yeah, I guess many people know about failaughy. :D :D Connected with my word, "When someone is failaughy, It's so lovennoying." :D

Thanks a lot all for your appreciation.

I really wish to use these words because I often have these expressions
but can't find it in English, especially lovennoyed. :)

Thank you very much for your reply, dear Tara Benwell. I think I understand what you mean. :)

Mishaikh, this is the answer for you. :)

@Onee-chan: Yes, I think these are all useful for everyday English! I love your choice of words. In fact, we know this to be true, because they exist in Indonesian!

Onee- I am in hurry! but I liked what you have written(:

Comment by Onee-chan on November 30, 2015 at 3:38

Dear Mohammad,

BIG thanks for your appreciation. It means a lot. :)

It is both, you can say someone is failaughy, you can also say their joke is failaughy. I wrote "describe someone" there because mostly it refers to person. For the description itself, I combined and fully modified it from several definitions. But in fact, we use it like...

"Don't be failaughy!" "Your story is failaughy, indeed!".

Thanks again for leaving a comment, it's precious. Have a fine time! ^^
