To my dear Jungly friend who says more better. We urgently need more better teachers for our school. Ahuv huv huv huv.

To my former coworker who used to say "more nicer" and "more cheaper" – the latter pronounced [ ʃiːpər ] and coming from "cheap" pronounced [ ʃiːp ], of course. (I'm sure there were at least a couple of more similar ones which I can't recall.) I was momentarily SO intimidated when another coworker introduced her informing me that beside Flemish and English, she could also speak French and Dutch… Ahuv ahuv ahuv.
Mind you, I had never used English (or any other foreign language, for that matter) outside a classroom up until a few days before that.

Just because I'm in one of those wicked moods. :-p

I love the term 'squiffsquiddled'!
I like a lot of words coined by the BFG. Bellypoppers and snozzcumbers are another two.

"Words", he said, "is oh such a twitch-tickling problem to me all my life. So you must simply try to be patient and stop squibbling. As I am telling you before, I know exactly what words I am wanting to say, but somehow or other they is always getting squiffsquiddled around."

And there I was thinking you were concerned about correct English! LOL!

Nah – personally, I just use the word "thingy-wingy" a lot. :-P

Sounds like a good plan to me!

This is a real avalanche of new words! They sound good.
I'm jealous that you know them and I don't, so I'm very busy right now, don't disturb, please!

Now I know!
I've just watched this delightful cartoon. "The BFG" is indeed a lovely story!
Thank you for mentioning it here. I hadn't heard of it.
... and I found all those weird and funny words :-)

Warmest regards,
Monica

I thought you knew it because you quoted it!
It was a children's book long before it was a cartoon.

Yes, the cartoon has been made after the book written by Roald Dahl. We can find anything we want from the internet. We only need a couple of words.
Cristina quoted from "The BFG", it seems that she knew something about this beautiful story.

Oh, sorry Monica, I was confusing you and Cristina there!
Both highly intelligent, well-read, competent English speakers, so no doubt that's why I made the error.

To tell you a secret Beees, I’m happy that you confused me with Cristina!
It's a very good start for a day like today :)
Thank you!
