Word mash-ups are slang terms made of two words to describe something in more detail. For example, "brunch" is a combination of "breakfast" and "lunch", and it means a meal that combines both breakfast and lunch foods. In this lesson, I will teach you many common word mash-ups that native English speakers use, such as "hangry", "skort", "shart", "ginormous", "spork", "sexting", and more. Many of these words are so common that they are almost considered standard English vocabulary, so it is important to know them. You can even create your own word mash-ups, and maybe they will become popular! At the end of the lesson, test your knowledge by doing the quiz, and don't forget to submit your own ideas for new word mash-ups in the comments section!
