Glamping, sporks, and phablets

In English we love combining existing words to make a new one.  For some time now, those who don’t like the idea of a draughty tent have been able to go glamping – a glamorous kind of camping. A useful item on that kind of holiday might be a spork – a combination of a spoon and a fork. Maybe you use freemium sites on your phablet. Or have you come across other new ‘portmanteau words’?
