How's your Saturday going?
That's nice or whatever. How about a Saturday fun fact? Let's talk about portmanteaus. It'll be painless, I promise.
A portmanteau is two words joined together to make a new one with both definitions. For example, if you weren't sure whether the lizard in front of you was a crocodile or an alligator, you might call it a crocogator.
But the fun fact comes in here: the first use of portmanteau in this manner comes from Lewis Carroll, in THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, the second of the Alice books. Humpty Dumpty, explaining the origin of the nonsense words in "Jabberwocky", says:
"You see it's like a portmanteau—there are two meanings packed up into one word."
Prior to this, a portmanteau referred only to a suitcase that opened in two equal sections.
See? Painless fun fact.
