A lot of colorful linguistic hybrids — portanteaus, if we must get technical about these accordion phrases — have emerged in recent times. Some that have been difficult to escape are:
• Staycation: Vacationing close to home because travel is expensive in tough economic times.
• Frenemy: A friend, partner or ally who is also a competitor or rival.
• Brangelina: I don’t even want to go there on this one.
I came across a new hybrid recently that I have readily embraced: civilogue.
