Subject: Re: new words???

At least some of those "new words" are from a humor book called

"Sniglets," which was published sometime in the 1980s. (I know

"carperpetuation" and "lactomangulation" are from there.) I don't

think any of them have caught on in the sense of being used in

actual writing or conversation that is not about them.
