Playing With: Word Puree Title
Basic Trope: A title that doesn't use real words.
  • Straight: There is a work called Ghaefreas
  • Exaggerated:
  • Downplayed: Word Salad Title
  • Justified: The title is an arc word in a Constructed Language.
  • Inverted: Exactly What It Says on the Tin title.
  • Subverted: The name Ghaefreas turns out to mean something in a rare dialect of Inuit.
  • Double Subverted: ...but it turns out it was considered a Word Puree Title when it was originally invented, too.
  • Parodied: There is a work called "California" (pronounced ''Ksfwytymbolmbolnagalooloo!").
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: The work's title uses real words.
  • Enforced: "Geez, I don't want to use cliche phrases and boring old words. I know! I'll use a title that is neither!"
  • Lampshaded: "Where did that name "Ghaefreas" come from?"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: Nobody can agree on how to pronounce the name. Flame wars ensue.
  • Reconstructed: To avoid the Deconstruction, the author tells the audience how to pronounce it.
  • Plotted A Good Waste: A rather random title is used so it's easier to search for the work in search engines.
