Word for the day

April 17, 2008

I was writing up a requirements document today and tried to insert the word “modifications”.  Instead, I accidentally dropped the “a” and was left with “modifictions”.  I think “ModiFictions” falls into the same category as these gems:

  • Weather “pre-fictions” (instead of predictions)
  • “Ginormous” (when something is just too large for “gigantic” or “enormous”)
  • “Automagic” (when a piece of software does something automatically, but it still looks like magic)
