manufact - (MAN-you-fact; n.) An artifact made by hand. [Back formation from "manufacture": Latin manu "by hand" + factura, pp of facere "to make."]

e.g., Before the industrial revolution and interchangeable parts, almost everything made by anyone was a manufact: bricks, pots, pans, houses, plows, clothes, knives, dice, candles, horseshoes, utensils, castles, coaches, decorations, carpets, crowns, and so on and on. Nowadays, however, manufacts are rare and more valuable for it. We admire works of art for their manufactedness; copies of art are, for us, cheap and plentiful. I have copies of Afremov paintings in my screensaver, but I would expect to pay many thousands of dollars for the originals.

martingale - Doubling up gambling scheme.

Risk management theory | Masterclass | Financial | Inside Edge UK At this point I'd like to introduce the martingale. This is a technique that involves increasing stake size as a run of losses extends. Classically, the martingale comes into play with gambling games like blackjack or roulette, where a stake is doubled after every sequential loss. When a win is made, the player gets back his losses and earns a "one-unit" win; the stake size is then reset. In theory, with infinite money you'll always end up winning in the end. The martingale and its many permutations are popular systems for trading. However the model is flawed as, in reality, you are liable to run out of money before your luck turns. Bad luck simply happens with greater regularity than the capital required to fund the operation. I've actually witnessed red come up 23 times successively on a roulette table. If I'd been running a martingale, it would have cost me £4 million to win back my £1 -- and even if I had £4 million, the table limit would defeat me.

e.g., Didn't take me long to find out that the martingale is one of the classic gambler's ruin betting systems. I overlooked the fact that I'd need an infinite amount of money to be sure I wouldn't go broke. Hell, if I had an infinite amount of money, I wouldn't need a betting system.

Let this simple phrase echo as a cry through the ages. It was said here, now. It is a matriarchy in which we live. Demonstrably." (Julian Darius, "The Matriarchy,"

I usually get pizza or microwave Chef Boyardee or, as my proposed word implies, get something from a fast-food joint: Taco Bell, Arby's, or, of course, McDonald's.

I love Mexican ... but you mean Taco Bell or something, right?" "Oh, come on: Taco Bell's good. I love Taco Bell."

Some characteristics of McMansions are: 1. They all generally look alike. 2. They have overblown architectural features -- oversize gothic windows, as an example. They are often sited on postage stamp size lots, so the overall visual effect of a subdevlopment of them can be rather jarring.

e.g., We decided to take a drive through a subdevelopment that was once wooded acreage. Talk about hideous. First the developers scraped away all the trees, then they built these gargantuan McMansions on tiny lots. Is this really what people want in a house?

mcnym - A "word part" used in an eponymous way. Source: "If we don't want to admit such word parts to the class of eponyms, they need a term of their own, and the choice, I think, is obvious: We'll call them McNyms."

e.g., Ed: Chris just goes from one McJob to another. Lasts maybe a week -- if that -- at each. Red: Is "McJob" an eponymous word? Or, if you will, an eponym? Ed: No, it's a McNym. The term doesn't come directly from McDonald's McJobs training program, but it's evocative of the sort of low-paying job that results from that program.

megaaggression - A logical extension of a new term I haven't quite figured out yet: microagression. I think maybe it goes something like this:

  • "Males have one Y chromosome and one X chromosome, while females have two X chromosomes."
  • If you refer to a person who has one X chromosome and one Y chromosome as a boy or a man, you've committed a microaggression.
  • So it must follow that if you refer to a person who has one X chromosome and one Y chromosome and self-identifies as being female as being a boy or a man (say Bruce aka Caitlyn Jenner), you've committed a megaagression. ... Or something.

I was surprised to find that the term has been around since 2004, recorded by Grant Barrett: microaggression n. subtle forms of racism or bias. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)

e.g., "He quickly goes to work slapping people with detentions for every triggering and microaggression he hears about, and it’s not long before even Cartman has decided to back down. It was actually kind of strange to have Kyle be the one who tries to hold out until the end rather than Cartman, but clearly they wanted a reason to make some Brady/DeflateGate jokes and that gave them an excuse." | I think it's become a megaagression to refer to the NFL team in Washington as the Redskins.
