Word Verification Balderdash, week 3

Here's a weekly meme, originated by Sheila at One Persons Journey through a world of books

Take all those word verifications you get when posting comments on other blogs and make up definitions for them. Here are mine for the past week:


vaket - a valet at 5 star hotels whose sole purpose is the carrying of guests' kites
cacents - a cascading or fading accent, like when someone pretends they are from another country but you notice changes in their voice, the more they speak; particularly used by bar hopping girls with assumed identities to ward off unwanted attention
faramp- 1-the ramp on the far side of the highway, 2- when the amplifier on the teenage kid next door's new stereo gets cranked too far that you can't hear yourself think
derstsb - Welsh word that translates to "that Word Balderdash game is really fun! Thanks Sheila" (there are an astounding number of consonants in Welsh words, have you noticed?)
ovites - an invitation to an outside party
oessec - Latin word meaning "just a sec"
A note to new participants, the more you comment, the more verifications you get which allows you more to work with as well as meeting new people in the blogging world. So, share a comment with me here and post a link on your blog back to me (and as always, props to the creator, see link above.)

These are fantastic! I got to cacents and I totally giggled (which brought strange looks from the office staff - but whatever). I think the best part of these is how it makes us think and have fun with words, which I have always enjoyed word games!

Thanks for playing and thank you for derstsb... I had no idea that's what it meant in Welsh! :)

Great words. I'd have to agree with bookjourney - cacents made me giggle. I hope I come across a few ovites for the weekend too. I'll have to participate in this next week.

I'm definitely having fun with this game. I used to do something similar with license plates on road trips (ok, I still do it.)

Truth be told though, I don't speak Welsh but have attached a road sign that proves my point...how does one pronounce these words?Welsh Road Sign

I've noticed that some friends with Scottish parents tend to get "cacents" while over-imbibing (I'm from a very Scottish background), so these people were my inspiration.

Lastly, I've been ovited to a soccer game this weekend. Thanks for all the great comments, guys!

Loved your words! Guess that vaket proves that the rich really are different from you and me. *L*

Think my favorite is cacents, but really liked them all. Great job! :)

Jackie said...

Thanks, Alexia! I've never had use for a vaket personally...

Vicki said...

Vicki - Thanks! There's a bag pipe player in my neighbourhood and while he's not exactly hooked to an amp, the sound really travels, lol.

Mel - It was you that ovited me already! Go team!
