Today’s redundant words are:-
Today’s redundant words are:-
Glossolalia n. nonsensical talk, gibberish
Gobemouche n. a gullible person
I found another delightful word but I couldn’t accommodate it:-
Gynotikolobomassophile n. One who nibbles women’s ears!
A small crowd had gathered in the square. In the centre, an elderly gentleman sat on a stool behind a small card table. I watched, fascinated. A well-dressed lady sat before him. He held both her hands in his. Together they closed their eyes. Glossolalia spouted from his lips followed by a fatidic promise of good times to come. She offered him payment, but he shook his head. Then she stood, smiled and walked away.
One gobemouche after another fell for his charms. By the time they realised their rings, bracelets and watches had disappeared he was gone.

Beware of men holding your hand and talking nonsense... they are actually in abundance, but there still remains a few who are true to their word and can be trusted with your heart and soul, along with your jewelry and money!ReplyDelete

I'm not one for holding men's hands Josie so I should be ok!Delete
Nice flash! But how do you say that word you couldn't incorporate? O.oReplyDelete

No good asking me!
story with a twist, what if he had been a Gynotikolobomassophile tooReplyDelete
He would steal their earrings!Delete
This was a good one; he was clever in his glossololia! Oh my gosh; never heard of gynotikolobomassophile! That is a mouthful of a word :)ReplyDelete
...a mouthful of ear too betty!Delete
I'd ask my husband to gynotikolobomassophile my ears, but I don't know how to pronounce it!
I guess I could give him a note.
And a dictionary.
A to Z
Probably the best idea Joanne!Delete
That's brilliant! Love the new words, although I'm not sure I'd be able to pronounce them.ReplyDelete

Go on, have a go!Delete
Fabulous! I'll have to remember this: Gynotikolobomassophile n. One who nibbles women’s ears. That's clever how you linked your previous stories at the bottom. I'm not that well versed with technology. Including a link in my signature would not have happened without instructions on the challenge page. ~grin~ I hope you're having a wonderful day!ReplyDelete

Until last week I was one of the only people using the signature link, then A-Z gave my secret away!Delete
Ha ha..hilarious.. very exotic sounding words and a lovely story !ReplyDelete
May be the man used to be a closet Gynotikolobomassophile who loved to kidnap and eat old women's ears and then spit out their earrings into his treasure box, later assuaged his flesh cravings with bacon and took on to Glossolalia to con gobemouches ??
