ZALOP gains further Fluxus Nuances - from Ruud Janssen.


I always think of Z at the back. The end of the alphabet. The lonely letter with the fewest words. I think Ruud has managed to change this with his Fluxus words. If we made a purely Fluxus Ruud Dictionary – I think Z is coming up top? ZALOP now has a series of variations:

ZALOP - the original Fluxus word given by Ruud meaning - ABSOLUTELY NO WAY DEFINITELY NOT NADA NIX.

ZALOPU -  A particular tone of ZALOP - the tone of NO WAYS!!!

ZALIP - This word comes with a warning - ZALIP is a doppelganger - a usurper of the true ZALOP - he inhabits his own high rise in ZALOP City from  where he intends to take over the World of Emphatics.

ZALOPY - The positive determiner of ZALOP - I said ZALOP and I MEANT ZALOP!

ZALOPAS - Negative Determiner of ZALOP - when NO is used to deflate or break down. When NO will be taken as yes by the hearer.

ZALOPA - Verb of ZALOP - the action of shaking ones head when answering ZALOP

ZALUP - a new word given by Ruud last week here determined to mean:

 No longer – ie – something that used to be but now no longer exists – a ZALOP vapor. 

ZOLIP - Here determined to mean: A negative person - ie a no-hoper.

I would call cheril a zalopogist. Especially when she analyses any zalop movements that are happening worldwide now.
