Moozeic

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mooz ik

Sentence: It's my own fault, thought Melodie. Having no other clue what to buy her Granny who had everything, for Christmas, she gave her an IPod and showed her how to load up tunes into it. Granny loved it and used it all the time. Trouble was, she cranked it so loud, everyone for miles around could hear it, especially Melodie. It was so loud in fact she could not hear her own tunes. "Granny!", she shouted, "Your moozeic would not be so bad if your vulgar rap tunes did not drown out my classical composers. I can't Handel the racket anymore. You're now off my Liszt...unless you turn the volume Bach down!"

Etymology: Music (an artistic form of auditory communication incorporating instrumental or vocal tones in a structured and continuous manner) & Ooze (to seep out; to leak)

Audiochaff

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: AW-DEE-OH-chaff

Sentence: In the hallway outside the library, Babs was listening to her personal audio device. Judging by the AUDIOCHAFF which slopped over, the sound levels inside her earbuds must have been deafening. The AUDIOCHAFF bore no resemblance to music, and even at a distance was more akin to the background radiation from outer space often heard on poorly tuned shortwave radios.

Etymology: AUDIO+CHAFF=AUDIOCHAFF.....AUDIO: of or relating to acoustic, mechanical, or electrical frequencies corresponding to normally audible sound waves; of, relating to, or utilizing recorded sound.....CHAFF: something comparatively worthless; Middle English chaf, from Old English ceaf; akin to Old High German cheva husk.
