This is a very productive way of creating new words. You probably have heard about "Brangelina" and you surely know that it means both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the mythical Hollywood couple who, unfortunately, are said to be divorcing these days.
Some more examples are:
- Channel + tunnel = Chunnel
- Smoke + fog = smog
- Breakfast + lunch = brunch
- Camera + recorder = camcorder
- Web + log = blog
Do you know any other portmanteau words? Post your answers!
