Snubstitution

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /SNUB-sti-too-shun/

Sentence: Amanda had learned that when her boyfriend was arguing with her, the best thing to do was turn on the TV and tune in the sports channel. By using snubstitution, she could give his aggression another target. He would still be yelling and shouting, but gradually his attention would shift to the athletes and announcers on the TV instead of screaming at her. Also, sometimes when he was trying to be sweet, Don would serenade her in public, but he had a lousy singing voice — so she would just kiss him repeatedly until he gave up.

Etymology: Snub - to suddenly check or stop the action of; to reject (from Old Norse, snubba "to curse, scold, reprove") + Substitution - something which the place of something else; replacement (from Latin, substitutus "put in place of another")

Slyversionary

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sly ver shun ary

Sentence: Sandra kept Simon's activities on a short leash. Whenever he wanted to do something she did not approve of, she would create a slyversionary attack. For instance, major sporting events on television were missed because that darn tv "acted up again" or "the cable was out". How could he join his buddies hunting when his rifle and hunting license were not to be found anywhere? You get the picture, but Simon failed to notice the coincidence of these events.

Etymology: Sly (marked by skill in deception) & Diversionary (an attack calculated to draw enemy defense away from the point of the principal attack;a tactic that diverts attention)
