inchoate: to unobtrusively have two go's at one definition in the hope that none of the other competitors notice thereby doubling your chance of taking the highly coveted grand prize. Disadvantage being that the angry mob may club you to death like a baby seal then dance around with your malletted head on a stick.

Hmmm, that was a cheeky little amazorixy definition, all right, now that I think of it. I may have a fully restored sense of humour one day yet.

But for today, the new word:

globulicide

globulicide When the localized effects of globalization completely kill off a native people's independence and connection to the land; a type of economic/cultural/socio-spiritual genocide.
"The building of a Wal-Mart in the little town of Danzasi (ficticious example name) resulted in complete globulicide for the native people of the area."

globulicide - the concentrate made by Haemo Maid with which, by merely adding warm water and stirring, Vampire-American consumers who are trying to quit may create that tasty and nutritious concoction, Globulicider.

globulicide the orangish, yellowish, brownish phosphorescent that is witches' venom and that runs cold from the graves of every malcontent buried in unvisited yards on Halloween Night. If you step in this stuff, you suffer a fate worse than death.

Exclamation

globulicide - killing oneself by playing with mercury, rolling it around in the palm of the hand, prodding it with curious fingers. At one time a legal pastime, permitted (even encouraged) in science classes everywhere, nowadays it's a good way to make the evening news and meet one's local hazmat response team in the bargain. Painful toxic reaction and subsequent death comprise the cloud beneath the irresistably shiny silver lining. (Ahh, but it's just so much FUN!!! )

globulicide (n.) the act of inflating one's head to the point of bursting in any way possible to avoid having it malleted and impaled on a dancing stick by an angry mob.

Globulicide can be a fascinating process to watch if one is ever in the position to witness it - but protective clothing is highly recommended.
