Pronunciation: zho-or-ah-kil

Sentence: "The Master demands a sacrifice, David," said Harvey, his canines bared as he paced along the fence next door, "He finds your limited faith insufficient." The labrador stopped and stared through the chain links at him vacantly. David held his head in his hands. Could this be happening? Was he a zooracle or just losing his mind? Either way, he had to silence the persistent animal, so he would silence him with sacrifice. "My fealty to the dark lord will be apparent by this afternoon." He disappeared into house and grabbed his .44 caliber Bulldog revolver, and stalked to his car. The tires squealed and the Ford Galaxie sped off into the city. When the car was a waning mirage the two teenage boys stepped out from behind Sam Carr's house, cackling with laughter and holding a walkie-talkie. "That Berkowitz kid is an IDIOT!" the taller of the two said, as they walked to the black lab and unstrapped the other handset from the dogs collar.

Etymology: zoo - prefix relating to animals, oracle - a chosen person who can interpret normally unintelligible communications from non-human sources


I considered 'oracle' as a component. I was thinking along the lines of, 'animoracle.' Nice combination. - stache, 2008-03-28: 01:27:00 er, dog. - stache, 2008-03-28: 01:38:00

Wow, Banky! Very imaginative theory on the 'Son of Sam' serial killer story, (in case anyone didn't catch that), and, I might add, chillingly morbid. Great stuff. - Tigger, 2008-03-30: 03:42:00

Pronunciation: PET-OPHELIA

Sentence: The old neighborhood Just ain't the same Nobody knows just What became of Ophelia? Where have you gone? .....Ashes of laughter The coast is clear Why do the best things always disappear? Like Ophelia... Please darken my door. .....lyrics by The Band

Etymology: PET+OH!+FEELYA=PETOFEELYA.....PET: a domesticated animal kept for pleasure rather than utility perhaps back-formation from Middle English pety small.....OH!: used to express acknowledgment or understanding of a statement [interjection].....FEEL YA: late 20th centuy slang, possibly rooted in ebonics, derived from the phrase" I FEEL YA"-implying a deep, unspoken empathy bordering on mystical understanding..... FEEL to be aware of by instinct or inference. Middle English felen, from Old English fēlan; akin to Old High German fuolen to feel, Latin palpare to caress.....OPHELIA: A pivotal character in Hamlet, Ophelia is the most one-dimensional. She has the potential to become a tragic heroine but she instead crumbles into insanity, becoming merely tragic and ducklike. Ophelia sings songs and waddles around the stage,handing out flowers while citing their symbolic meanings and consuming millet. Although interpretations of the meanings differ, her telepathic contact with deceased waterfowl is generally accepted as a manifestation of madness- at least in the stage version that recently made it's North American tour of shabby playhouses and art-nouveaux beer gardens......

Pronunciation: PET ah gog

Sentence: The reason Ann Noy talks with animals is that no people WANT to talk with her. She is a petagogue, spewing her dog-ma all the time. She talks until she's horse. People are too cowed by her obviously superior intelligence to ox her what she's talking about, and it's too difficult to ferret out the meaning. Everyone ducks when they see her coming, and they just want to bat her away. So she long ago gave up trying to figure out why people were so catty about her, and retreated, tortoiselike, to her cocoon to live out her days as an animal whisperer.

Etymology: pet + pedagogue (a person who teaches, instructs, or talks in a manner that is excessively dogmatic, shows off his or her learnedness or overemphasizes minor details)

Pronunciation: lihng-gwa-freek-owt

Sentence: Her parents thought it might have begun with that cute little sock monkey she was given on her first birthday. But, as her world expanded to include a pet dog, generations of hamsters, three cats, birds of many colors and sizes, endless trips to many zoos across the country, horses and a private stable at twelve, the llamas and alpacas, that safari in her twenties followed by an attempt at veterinary school, the cycles between her linguafreakouts were becoming closer and closer.

Etymology: From LINGUA FRANCA, meaning language used by persons who speak different languages + FREAK OUT, slang, meaning to make or become highly agitated
