Pronunciation: snak-uh-MAY-nee-ah

Sentence: It wasn't that he dull. It wasn't that he was bald, yet hairy at the same time. It wasn't even that he snored and smacked his lips when he ate. It was that he ate impulsively and urgently, and so often in bed that drove the poor woman mad. Thomas's frequent pre-slumber snackomania irritated the living daylights out of Miriam, more than the crumbs that ended up in the bed. His nocturnal tachyphagus tendencies were really trying her patience... Rat poison featured too often in her dreames. Something had to give...

Etymology: SNACK: a small portion of food or drink or a light meal, esp. one eaten between regular meals, + MANIA: an exaggerated desire or enthusiasm for.

Pronunciation: snaw-gle

Sentence: Hillary liked Bobby. And she didn't mind sleeping with him except for the fact that he was an habitual snoggler, who'd consume two boxes of cookies, diet coke and small chicken every night while he was sleeping. She didn't mind the crumbs, but she couldn't stand the constant slurping! So she game him an ultimatum. He said he couldn't sleep on an empty stomach. She told him that he would have to sleep in an empty bed.

Etymology: snore + snogger + hog
