sad.  I have a minor in this, and I had no idea about this stuff.
what are they teaching kids these days?

when i TA-ed linguistics 101 a couple of years ago, it was much less about terminology and formalism and much more about language and society and language and the brain issues. ling 201 was much more about formalism and concepts of linguistic theory, but skipped the terminology.

Here are some of the more important ones.

TTTSEF: Third Tier Toilet *&^% Eating Faggot
STFU: Shut the @#!* Up
LF: Loser Fucker
XOXO, HTH: Hugs and Kisses, Hope this helped, used sarcastically
XOXOHTH: also autoadmit.com, another law and college discussion board (also as just xo or xoxo) most lsders scorn that place.

I would think it would have to blend forms as well as meanings. Otherwise, "portmanteau" itself would not be a portmanteau.

makes sense.

wikipedia suggests that portmanteau as fusion of meaning (or grammatical function, as they put it) is a term of art, while portmanteau as fusion of form and meaning is colloquial.

I'm a grad student. I read for a living.

Beatnik:

not too sure I have seen you around, so welcome!
I def agree with you re: policy with "n00bs" (see earlier post) and I LOVE YOUR AVATAR!  foxes are my favorite.

chica was right about the generally used sarcastically (i know i wasn't 100% last night), you can generaly tel in context.

haha i know tra, i read the rules, i just wanted to be welcoming and save all the trouble of googling etc... most of the info. i have is because i asked people who were nice enough to tell me (as others on this board have been as well), esp. when googling was not productive.  besides, i know it is not in my power to determine who is worth having around or not!  if you guys want to make those decisions, you have seniority and i shall yield, but i just want to help out when i can and try not to exclude those who seem to be nice and making some kind of effort!

This thread sickens me.  Arhodg, you have so clearly broken the rules.  We don't tell newbies the acronyms because if they can't figure them out on their own (by doing a search for example) then they aren't worth having around. 

Please see the thread entitled "The Rules" in the OTB and close those loose lips!! ;) (loose fingers?)

oh please.  and here i thought high school was over.

Cyberrev:  I think I asked you what your name meant, but I can't remember if you answered or not (or if I even asked).

Arhodg, please see the thread "the rules".  We have determined that your punishment involves a spanking.  However, because we are a benevolent ruling class, we will let you decide who inflicts them.  I would recommend Veg or Chica. ;)
