Over at The Daily Post @ WordPress.com one of the Daily Prompts is Play Lexicographer.
I thought I would try my hand at this game, using the theme of Veteran’s Day to invent new words to honor all the men and woman who have served our country. Here are a few words I have created …
Uvetidid – (you-vet-I-did) n. a person who served in the military or a soldier who has seen considerable active service .
Vetservedcountry (Vet-serve-country) v. a civilian who has in the past served in the military.
Honorvetservice (honor-vets-service) v. 1. the act of honoring. 2. Something all citizens should do on Veteran’s Day and every day.
Thankavet (thank-a-vet) v. give gratitude for the unselfish service of a Veteran.
Givevetscredit (give-vets-credit) v. the act of giving credit to the men and woman who have served our country.
I wonder what other words we can invent to express our gratitude to all those brave men and woman who have given their time and their lives for our freedom. Share your words of thanks.
