* In Myth/AztecMythology, the ahuizotl`s name literally translates as "spiny aquatic thing."

Added DiffLines:

* In Inukitut, the Inuit language, new words are formed this way. For example, the word for computer literally means "little artificial brain."

Added DiffLines:

In linguistics, this is typically referred to as a "nonce" -- a term or figure of speech created for a single occasion, typically to quickly move along conversation or direction.


* When UsefulNotes/SarahPalin asked, "How's that hopey, changey thing working out for ya?" at the first-ever national Tea Party Convention, many wondered if Creator/JossWhedon had suddenly, inexplicably been employed as her speech writer. For those who haven't paid attention to American politics lately, or have just had their heads under a rock, this was an allusion to Barack Obama's campaign slogans of "hope and change." [[DontExplainTheJoke Which she was making fun of]].
* While on the subject of Republicans, some of old [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush No.43's]] bushisms would qualify. "Tribal sovereignty means just that; it's sovereign. You're a--you've been given sovereignty, and you're viewed as a sovereign entity."
* Again with the Republicans: Congressman Kevin [=McCarthy=], then House Majority leader and the number one choice as replacement for Speaker John Boehner after the latter retired, gave a press release of such strange coherence that the next day, political pages in major newspapers like the Wall Street Journal actually explicitly compared it to this trope.
* As stated above, Creator/JossWhedon himself--in interviews, one can practically ''see'' the ''Buffy'' script flowing forth as he speaks. Also, Jim Butcher has fallen into this a couple of times, perhaps.

* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' has most of the song "Part of Your World" based on this when Ariel sings about her collection of land... gizmos, gadgets, whoosits, whatzits, and thingamabobs. She apparently improves her vocabulary as the song progresses, though. Probably justified, since she gets all her information about the names and functions of human artifacts from [[TheDitz Scuttle]], so it's likely she thinks those are the actual names for those objects.

-->"I just love the happy vibe of this tune. I just picture all these little... uh... elfy things... doing like, little toe dances, y'know?!"


* People on [=PlayStation=] consoles who go for [[AchievementSystem trophies]] refer to the act of earning the Platinum trophy for a game (which usually requires earning every other trophy) as "Platinuming it".

** A quick word of advice for those about to go to US Army/Marine Corps training, the 'something' does not include your helmet, or your rifle. Doing so will incur the wrath of your local DrillSergentNasty. For best results, use an empty magazine, or your E-Tool.
