Troogling, whoogling and loogling

IMG_3792

I found this in this week’s New York Times Sunday Magazine, something I haven’t seen a hard copy of in a while. It’s a collection of words that don’t exist but probably should:

  • “Troogle” = to find out something by searching for it online (truth + google)
  • “Whoogle = to find out something about a person by searching for it online (who + google)
  • “Roogle” = to regret googling something
  • “Loogle” = to find a restroom on google (in British English, many people use the word “loo” for toilet)

How about “Moogle” or “Boogle” = to find out something about a movie or book by googling it?

Or go bilingual with “koogle” (食う=くう is one way to say “to eat”) –> meaning, “to google a good place to eat”?

Any other ideas?

I found some other examples of words that should exist here, but it doesn’t look like she updates it very frequently.
