Can we please talk more about blends like “vlog” (video+blog) and “shwasted” (shitfaced+wasted)?
These onset consonant clusters didn’t exist in English until now. Blends are changing English phonotactics and it’s horribly exciting.
Superman was born on krypton, so I immediately felt like that clue was misleading. So I searched up people who play Supes in movies, Henry Cavill was born on a tiny Island off the coast of the UK, about 100 miles away from Hampshire, with French and English blends in their culture. A place self-governed but still under the crown. That place is Jersey!
