Manguage [ mang-gwij ] – noun,
– a mashup language, a body of words put together to enable more efficient, if not humorous communication, for their use common to a people who are of the same community, or the same cultural tradition: in speech or in writing.

Manguage is a highly evolved method of communicating ideas, perhaps if by only the mere passage of time. It is much more efficient than the use of acronyms and consistent with my German heritage for word construction (aka Wornstruction).  As an example, that previous sentence could be summed up by just saying, “Manguage is Morficient Wonstruction.”  

Granted, every once in a while a word in Manguage can have more than one meaning. Not only is this a good circumstance, this is highly sought after. In order to completely understand the idea being communicated, you need to factor in context. This may seem awkward to some, but this is in fact no different than many other words in conversational English. For example, “there they’re with their thing.” Three words with the same sound, needs context. So do what I do and embrace Manguage, or, at least have fun with it. But be safe. Some words are not meant to be mixed. Also, please use Manguage in moderation. Too much Mangugae can cause all sorts of relationship problems. Not everyone is sophisticated enough, nor prepared enough to communicate using Manguage.
