Portmanteau Word

1.29.11 - portmanteau word. A word formed by merging the sounds and meanings of two different words, as chortle, from chuckle and snort.

I never knew what a portmanteau word was, at least I did not know the this was the definition. It's a good day - I learned something new. Put your favorite portmanteau word in the comments if you like.
