    I have always used agreeance. "So we are in agreeance that the singing fish needs to go?" How is it being used now days?

    The context is the same as "agreement".

    I don't mind words like that at all. In fact, I tend to make up my own when I either can't think of the right one or can't decide between two. I also put suffixes on words that usually aren't used there, like "agreeance". Another would be "agreeableness".
    One of my most often used ones is "flustrated" - flustered & frustrated at the same time.

    A Facebook friend and I were discussing my recent gallbladder-related health issues. She said she's glad hers was taken out and she celebrates her gallbladderlessness often. Now THAT is a word that clearly defines itself!

    Oh my. I have heard my parents say "flustrated" before and I just smiled to myself and ignored it. I thought they were just mispronouncing it by mistake and I didn't want to embarrass them by correcting it. (I'm funny about that and have to hold my tongue. The fact people use "seen" instead of saw or have seen drives me crazy. Pet peeve of mine.) I had no idea they may have been combining words for their own purposes. Hmmmm........

    Our Fourth of July celebration went great! The weather was hot, but nice. We only had a few friends over, but that was the plan. It was very nice.

    I hope all is well for those who are traveling. North Carolina didn't get too much bad weather from Hurricane Arthur. It looks like the tourists stayed. They just have to watch for those rip currents.

    Tell me about it. I double-majored in German and French education.
    My favorite German compound noun in high school was "Sonnabendnachmittagsspatzierga ng," which means "Sunday afternoon walk."
    I <3 German compounds.

    I have no idea why this site is screwing with my legit German word and breaking it up into smaller words. (Maybe it just looks screwed up on my iPad? )
