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’? Send us your favourites!
Take part in our webinar programme for quick, easy ways to develop your teaching knowledge and pick up new ideas to take into the classroom.
