Weasel Wordplay Wednesday: Intense Stoatments in Tents

I don’t want to be loquacious
mendacious or salacious
because I’m not the eponymous
leading character of this mess
while it may seem total nonsense
you may remember these words hence.

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, chief word correspondent at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon.

It’s been quiet on the Greenygrey word front lately, so it’s good to be back looping the mix.

The introductory poem is not just for decoration, as it also contains a couple of the main words inspiring my interest today.

Loquacious Loki Lokycious 

Loquacious means being talkative and garrulous, and was last week’s buzz word of mind in Greenygrey Central.

Loki and kenghis

It looks like it could quite easily have been a Greenygrey word, such as lokycious, which could mean being like Loki, one of the Greenygrey’s possible ancestors.

P.S. for loquaciousness,
I just visited the wikipedia reference,
and it took me to fluency
which was quite a nice place to be,
but sometimes it’s also nice to be crazy
which is more in line with Loki,
but not in modern human society
better to be somewhere you feel free.

Eponymous E pony Mouse

Eponymous is a Greenygrey word I was thinking about this week.

To me, it looks like eponymous means an email sent quickly with a mouse, like the pony express used to be the fastest mail delivery for the cavalry in the old Wild West.

However, eponymous does in fact mean giving your name to something, or something being named after someone: such as Greenygrey being the eponymous subject of Greenygrey’s Rambles: How to Remember North America.

Which was where all this Greenygrey  word memorising and poetry synchronising all began…
