I am a logophile. I love words. I love big multisyllabic words. One of my favorite words is onomatopoeia. An onomatopoeia is a word that describes or makes a sound like in the Batman comic books: OOMPH, ZIP, BOOM. Onomatopoeia is such a big word for such an easy definition. Yep, I love words, but not all words. I hate internet verification words.
My repugnance for verification words comes from my adulation for words. I have to figure out what every word I read means, even if it isn't a real word. The word verification words that exacerbate me the most are the words without vowels because when creating a word one needs a vowel sound.
My need to read a word and surmise the definition has caused predicaments for me. When buying tickets for events on the internet one must be quick or one loses their place in line. I have lost many a good seat trying to read and define a verification word.
Of course I have kept a list of verification words, yes, I know, I need to get a life. Below is my word verification dictionary:
bacoun n. (ba cone) French bacon
dourisar n. (dower sore) a grumpy dinosaur
equallator n. (e quil la tor) a button that a superhero pushes to create a fair fight
fatowd n. (fat oid) an overweight alien
jonbog n. (jon bog) the swamp we lost Jon in
kildudy n. (kil doo tee) an easy duty that a teacher would kill to have
mimxram v. (mim ics ram) when men chestbutt
pring n. (pah wing) pronunciation of the word spring by someone with a speech impediment
puniati n. (pun e ah tee) an italian punster
sautio n, (sow te o) an uncle pig in Mexico
vochozave n. (vo cho sav vee) a person that knows a lot about vochoes
The ancient teacher in me would like to have you use them in a sentence.
This chicka-chicka-wow-wow would like you to sprinkle a little bacoun on my food or I might turn into a dourisar.

Oh, great logophile, what is a lounge lizard and do they hide in the bushes with the other lizards?
