    Not distant cousins of Amulet.

    A website called social_goat in India introduced me to this concept with this story by Neha D'souza. Running Out Of Topics For Small Talk? Well, 'Sniglets' Are Here To Help You Out!

    A sniglet is “Any word that doesn’t appear in the dictionary, but probably should.”

    You make up the word, and use it in small talk, especially when you are about to run out of things to say. There one example, there are more in the LINK.

    Reading that story reminded me of an old thread (@Rihana: I cannot find the thing to link that) with comments on foreign words we like to import into English, and what they ought to mean when they land in our dictionary.

    Do you make up sniglets?
    I have not tried that, but here is one of my own.
    desinag (noun)
    The designated nag of a home.
    The person who reminds everyone else all the "to do" items on each individual list, a constantly updating, open excel spreadsheet of sort.
