TIRISH – The Wednesday Wordapod

So, what would YOU call a newish language spoken by very tired people?


Wordapodia, Vol. 1


If you like “Tirish”, you really need to pick up a copy of Wordapodia, Volume One: An Encyclopedia of Real Fake Words, where you will find more than 250 other creative, fun Wordapods.



Tirish (n) – the English language as spoken by very tired people. Some of the Asian and Arabic countries appear to also have derivatives of this language, and Tirish is beginning to be taught overseas at many secondary schools as an elective.


Sample Sentence:  While I strained to hear everything my beloved wife uttered, the Tirish she spoke was unintelligible.


So, How About…

Enter Frieda Wilmont, head of Slippery Slope College’s Unusual Languages Department. “Tirish is one of the leading languages of the future. I would estimate that 98% of all Americans speak it at one time or another, and almost everything under the sun is spoken about in Tirish. Our students learn important phrases such as Wama vulla loo—which depending on the inflection, could mean anything from:


  • Can you hand me the remote?
  • Please set my alarm clock for 7:30.
  • Wow! The Eagles won again?!
  • Any food in the fridge?
  • Time to mow the friggin’ lawn.”
