* Newspeak in ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'' is all about this. Not only is the name a Portmantitle itself, its full of Portmanteau words like "plusgood". This is because Newspeak is explicitly designed to ''limit'' individual/personal expression, so complexity and nuance are glossed over and replaced with Portmanteaus of simple words and concepts. There is no "great", "fantastic", "wonderful", "stupendous", etc. There's only "good"/"plusgood"/"doubleplusgood".
* The titles in the ''CalLeandros'' series.
* The first book of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', ''Storm Front'', was almost called ''Semiautomagic''.



* ''Freakonomics'' - pointing out unexpected (~= 'freaky' or "freak event") causes in the field of "economics"

%% Not a case of Exactly What It Says On The Tin, as it fails: "...the premise or plot of the story is ''all'' right there in the title."
* ''Literature/Promposal'': A YoungAdult novel by Rhonda Helms that involves an instance of ThePromposal. As part of the blurb says:
--> Camilla can't help hoping her secret crush, Benjamin, might randomly surprise her out of the blue with a promposal. However, when she's asked to prom by an irritating casual acquaintance—wearing a fancy tux and standing in front of a news crew—she's forced to say yes.
