The Word Factory

Do you ever feel zibbelish? On a wolty day? One of those days that makes you all coopless? Those
words are weird, don’t you think - zibbelish, wolty, coopless. Did you know them? Probably not,
because they’re hot off the presses of the Word Factory. Still, you probably had a bit of an idea about
what they meant. That’s because they’re smartly invented words, invented by our experts. Do you
also want to know how words are made, and maybe invent one yourself? Then come visit us at the
Word Factory! Learn how new words are built in the School for Word Inventors, and try your hand at
it yourself in the Word Makery. If you’ve invented a really great word, you can write it into The New
Dictionary, and you can even get a certificate! See you at the Word Factory, the best place for ainship
and dotery!
