I’m a self-employed lexicographer. From time to time I’ll post some of my thoughts and ideas here about lexicography and dictionaries.
My current lexicographical project is titled Mixed Blessings, and it’s about blend words (sometimes called portmanteau words) that are combinations of names of religions and denominations. Some of the more than 1,000 words I’m studying are: bapticostal, episcolutheran, fundagelical, jubu, mennocostal, pentevangelical, quagan, quanglican, and sushi. (Can you determine which religions or denominations make up each of those words?)
