This week’s word is oojamaflip. This was just one of those words in a book that I thought might be a made-up word. I read a lot of fantasy science fiction stuff, and there are always made up words in those books. But no – this is an actual word!
- (slang) a thing whose name is temporarily forgotten
The word has very little information about it on any of the sites I visited. It appears to be a derivative of ‘oojah’.
Neither oojamaflip nor oojah are acceptable words for Scrabble. Too bad. How fun when somebody says what does that word mean? And you answer – it is a word for something that I have forgotten.
I hope you can throw this word into your conversation this week.
