As most IUOMA members know, Ruud Janssen has had an ongoing Score of Fluxus Words since September 1988 – that’s 23 years ago!!! In celebration of September 1988 – a new word arrived for me to promote as a new word, determine its meaning and then to disseminate WORLD WIDE! I need your help here – JOIN THE NEW GROUP!!! Its GOTIJ – MAN – and we’ve ALL GOTIJ – thanks to Ruud.
YES!!! I have received FAB Mail Art!
GOTIJ to be said in an excited tone with the intention to respond to said mail art.
GOTIJ relieves the speaker/writer from the lengthy phrase “I have received mail art from…” Replace with GOTIJ
The new word came with a wonderful letter - I am not sure if its a word or not :-) - now that I have determined the meaning I MAY have a look see.
I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall in this discussion - These two ZALOPS are deciding wether or not they concur with the following meanings of ZALOPU and ZALOPA
A particular tone of ZALOP
The voice tenor used when one is told a tall story and says ZALOP in the tone of NO WAYS!!! IE ZALOP ZALOP – and/or a double negative.
