When languages evolve, it's essential that scholars and dictionaries keep up. The internet has spawned a new crop of funny words for stuff, and while you may not like all of them, some of them are clever combos that seem like they might actually be useful!

Many of these words come from urbandictionary.com, which is basically a dictionary of all new slang. Their site is probably the most complete dictionary of modern words, but it's also chock-full of nonsense.

Most of these words are portmanteaus, which are what you get when you mash both the sounds and meanings of two words together to get a new one. Did you know, for example, that the word 'smog' is a portmanteau (smoke and fog)? 'Brunch' (breakfast and lunch) is another one that has recently reached a status of an everyday word, although it's been around for a while. Also, if you're eating your brunch with a spork, then that's a portmanteau double-whammy.

Check our list of funny new words below - you might find one that will stick to your lexicon perfectly.

There needs to be a word for the opposite of this, i.e. the person who starts clapping before the performance is finished.
