Word of the Day, Wednesday "Sgiomlaireached"
 

Once again, thank you for the honour that you have bestowed upon me!

Today’s “Word of the Day” is:

 

Sgiomlaireached = SGIOMLAIREACHED

 

Remember, NO DICTIONARIES, and NO INTERNET definitions.

We want witty, humourous or even daft definitions.

All the Best!

Well, at a push "sgio" sounds a bit like "sugee" in Japanese, which is popular with the young to mean "cool / great / awesome," and m = my, liar = eagle ´s lair, and reached = reached. So I think it ´s the special cry an eagle gives on reaching it ´s lair at the top of a very, very high mountain.

Sgiomlaireached

clearly this word is made up: it ´s not registering in my googlechrome spell check! hahaha...

Three words I can see -- with a squint of the eye and a huge imagination:: The gnome I reached.

That ´s all from me this time...

Thumbs Up

There are certain creatures and the rare human being who make there homes in scumbags. The actual bags where scum accumulates or in the case of humans, a room where rubbish, trash and garbage abide with their owner.
 
The word is not at all complicated and simply means. "I ´m home!"
 
sgion--scum
lair--room
reached
 
So, do you call out "I ´m home!" or "Sgiomlaireached" 
 
Off to my lair,
David

´ ´SGIOMLAIREACHED ´ ´

SGIOM = Is an Anagram = Smigo which was a common nickname for a smelly scruffy unclean person at school in the 70 ´s

LAIR = A place in which to lie or rest; like a bed.


REACHED = For emotion

SO SGIOMLAIRREACHED = A SMELLY SCRUFFY PERSON LAYING IN HIS/HER PIT REACHING OUT FOR EMOTION.

mmm... this one is really easy

Sgio: it looks like Sergio, which is a male name in Spanish

M: his last name, like Martinez (a common last name here in Mexico)

Lair: lier misspelled

Reach: reach

Ed: male name

So de deffiniton is

Sergio Martinez lies to reach Ed!

Maybe Sergio Martinez and Ed are in a rally and Ed is winning so Sergio MArtinez has to lie to reach Ed.

My theory:
It is NOT a word.

It ´s the death rattle , the last sound before dying, of an ESL member who just found out that another one of his worksheets was stolen and uploaded by somebody else.

The gesture that goes with this non-word is: hand to throat
The facial expression that goes with it is: bulging eyes
The second that follows it is a big thump as the dying member falls flat on the floor (notice the alliteration, eh??)
