    Default Coin a new word?

    Talking about spell check. My son wrote 'onomonopoaeic' and off the top of my head I said (typed) It isn't runderlined "red Underlined" So is that a new word? Or did I see it else where?
    If it's new consider it public domain

    Shouldn't it be onomatopoeic? as in sound-mimicking?

    From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onomatopoeia

    Onomatopoeia (occasionally spelled onomatopœia) is a word or a grouping of words that imitates the sound it is describing, suggesting its source object, such as “bang”, “click”, "buzz", or "pop" or animal noises such as “moo”, “oink”, “quack”, or “meow

    'Tarn', a proper noun derived from the participle 'tarnished', used as a nickname for a co-worker who doesn't know what she is doing, makes up rules and regulations for things that we don't do, and can't stop hassling me about some baloney she thinks she sees. I go to work ready to have a good time and she 'tarnishes' my fun.

    Useage: "That stupid b1tch Tarn was hassling me again."
