Two of my co-workers are experienced in the art of making up funny-sounding, hip-hoppish words. Over the weekend, I learned that many of friends share in this proclivity.

Verbs seem to be the best starting point, and the basic formulation seems to be: take an existing verb and merge it with an alternate verb ending (or endings); add additional syllables to taste; enjoy. It also seems to help if you say them in the passive voice and in a Jonny-Blaze-style thug voice.

Some prime examples from over the weekend (not credited to their authors, because I don't remember who said what):

  • Moistrify - a variation of moisturize that implies a more-thorough drenching, especially with alcohol; consumption of alcohol is also implied.

    Example: "Yo, G., I got straight-up moistrified out in Esmont. "

  • Demonstricate - meaning slightly unclear, but it seems to be destructive and possible pain-inducing.

    Example: "Dammit, Stanley, if you don't quit pushing me, you 'bouts to get demonstricated."

  • Penetromonate - meaning unknown, but clearly it's dirty.

    Example: [ed. note: I can't think of an example that doesn't make me feel excessively libidinous. But feel free to try for yourself.]

If the comment drought is over, feel free to make up your own and share 'em with the group.

I find that adding "izzle" to most nouns makes for clever hippity-hoppity wordizzles. yeah. for realizzle.

Todizzle I gots to cookify some lentizzles and eat dems wit some riceizzle.

Also, just adding an 's' to some singular verbs adds that ghetto flair.

I ams lovin' me some foodizzle cause I ams soopa hungry.

But how do we explain the lack of Sizzler references in hip-hop songs?
