I was thinking of there being very silly sounding words. The first one that popped to mind was "discombobulated"... and then that was it.
Is it just me, or are silly words not really around anymore? I mean, I found some in Roald Dahl's books (particularly in his language, Gobblefunk) but those aren't really words (I was really looking for the word "bumfuzzled" in there... ok, silly words can remain silly, but let's not make this question silly.)
Why does such a word like "discombobulate" continue to be used today?
Look, it has become a joke to use it, really, especially at school. But perhaps there are other silly words like it, and I just don't know of them. However this question is mainly focused on the word "discombobulate" and not so much on others, though you are welcome to comment some silly words like this you might know, if you want.
Two days ago, I asked my English teacher about any silly words she knew, and she replied with "extramundane". I don't think the word sounds too silly; as a matter of fact, it's meaning is pretty cool. But hey, I think talking about this word is rather extraneous ;)
