English - Etymology 2

Coined by Lewis Carroll in Through The Looking Glass to describe the words he coined in Jabberwocky. NOUN PORTMANTEAU (_plural_ PORTMANTEAUS _or_ PORTMANTEAUX) * (linguistics) A portmanteau word. * 1872, Lewis Carroll, _Through The Looking Glass_ (Chapter VI. Humpty Dumpty), the first usage in this sense: Well, “slithy” means “lithe and slimy.” “Lithe” is the same as “active”. You see it’s like a PORTMANTEAU–there are two meanings packed up into one word. SYNONYMS * (portmanteau word): blend, frankenword, portmanteau word TRANSLATIONS ADJECTIVE PORTMANTEAU (_not comparable_) * (used only before a noun, of a word, story, etc.) Made by combining two (or more) words, stories, etc., in the manner of a linguistic portmanteau. * 2002, Nicholas Lezard, _Spooky tales by the master and friends_ in _The Guardian_ (London) (December 14, 2002) page 30: The overall narrator of this PORTMANTEAU story - for Dickens co-wrote it with five collaborators on his weekly periodical, _All the Year Round_ - expresses deep, rational scepticism about the whole business of haunting. * 2002, Nick Bradshaw, _One day in September_ in _Time Out_ (December 11, 2002) Page 71: We're so bombarded with images, it's a struggle to preserve our imaginations.' In response, he's turned to cinema, commissioning 11 film-makers to contribute to a PORTMANTEAU film, entitled '11'09"01' and composed of short films each running 11 minutes, nine seconds and one frame.
