sninner - The word is a blind in which I gathered the words snack and dinner to express the meal that we eat after the afternoon snack and before dinner.

e.g., Tomorrow, we are going to a concert at 8 p.m so we will have a sninner at 7 p.m

snippersnapper - Dr. Goodword: "a conceited, insignificant fellow."

Collins English Dictionary: "An insignificant but pretentious person."

Different from whippersnapper: "A feisty, snippy, combative upstart." However, Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary, 11th Edition, says it's a synonym for whippersnapper and gives the following as an example of its use: "[HD's] an old hand who regards these kids right out of business school as a bunch of snippersnappers who don't know beans."

Given that I'm prone to use whippersnapper, I'm going with Dr. Goodword's take on snippersnapper. I'll find it useful to treat it as having a meaning different from whippersnapper. His newsletter says he found the word used 109 times on the Internet. I'd bet at least several of those are instances where I'd use whippersnapper.

e.g., I'm sure there are some days a snippersnapper would annoy me more than a whippersnapper and days where the reverse would be true. | The most annoying person currently in TV ads is the Peter (Pan?) character in the GEICO ads. If any kid had ever said to Melba what the kid in the ad says to the woman, I would have had to be restrained to keep me from strangling him. To me, he's a whippersnapper but not necessarily a snippersnapper.

snollygoster - Brittanica?: "A shrewd, unprincipled person. Etymology: probably alteration of snallygaster, a mythical creature that preys on poultry and children." An unethical politician or lawyer. |  
 
"A politician who will go to any lengths to win public office, regardless of party affiliation or platform." | One, especially a politician, who is guided by personal advantage rather than by consistent, respectable principles. | The word snollygoster was removed from Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary 11th Edition in July 2003. That led to a new meaning for the word, as illustrated in the following sentence: "If a word goes too many years without getting plucked for any citations -- falls out of usage, that is, even from historical novels -- it, too, could wake up snollygostered."
 
 

© Michael Quinion -- Snollygoster: . . . Columbus Dispatch of October 1895: "A Georgia editor kindly explains that 'a snollygoster is a fellow who wants office, regardless of party, platform or principles, and who, whenever he wins, gets there by the sheer force of monumental talknophical assumnacy.'" But an American dictionary fifty years earlier had defined it simply as a shyster. The origin is unknown, though the Oxford English Dictionary suggests it may be linked to snallygoster, which some suppose to derive from the German schnelle Geister, literally a fast-moving ghost, and which was a mythical monster of vast size -- half reptile, half bird -- supposedly found in Maryland, and which was invented to terrify ex-slaves out of voting.

Snollygoster: From Robin Bloor's Words You Don't Know

A snollygoster is a shrewd but unprincipled individual. The word is sometimes rightly used to describe grimgribbers and politicians, but often applies equally to plaintiffs who bring unreasonable lawsuits and (as it sometimes happens) win the. The most famous of these wheel-of-fortune law suits was undoubtedly that brought by  81-year-old Stella Liebeck. In 1994 she sued McDonalds (the hamburger chain) after she spilled a cup of McDonald's coffee on herself, suffering 3rd degree burns to her legs, groin, and buttocks. A New Mexico jury awarded her $2.9 million in damages. She thus gave her name to the Stella Awards, which regularly highlight the most egregious legal snollygosting of the previous year.

Despite this eponymity, it only seems fair to include other details of Stella Liebeck's case. McDonalds  managers specified that its coffee should be served at 180 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit and liquids at that temperature can cause third-degree burns in two to seven seconds. The resultant scarring is typically permanent and McDonalds did not provide any warning of the possible danger. Following the initial award of $2.7 million in punitive damages and a further $200,000 in compensatory damages, the total award was actually reduced to $640,000 and ultimately Lieback and McDonalds entered a secret settlement rather than pursue the case through the court of appeal.

But here is perhaps the most important point: The U.S. National Coffee Association recommends that coffee be brewed at "between 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal extraction." If it is not drunk immediately, it should be "maintained at 180 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit." So really, what did McDonalds do wrong?

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another famous snollygosting tale is provided by Mr. Merv Grazinski of Oklahoma City. Mr. Grazinski's story began when he purchased a new 32-foot Winnebago motor home. On his trip home, after entering the freeway, the Winnebago crashed and overturned. So Grazinski sued the Winnebago company and was awarded $1,750,000 plus a brand new recreational vehicle. This was despite the fact that, while driving home, he had set the cruise control at 70 mph and left the driver's seat to make himself a cup of coffee in the back of the Winnebago.

To be fair, Mr. Grazinski was actually suing Winnebago for not making it clear in the owner's manual that he shouldnï't do that kind of thing -- that is, making coffee in the back of the vehicle while leaving the driver's seat unattended. We're sure, of course, that he had read the owner's manual cover-to-cover before getting into the vehicle and starting it up. (Everyone does this, right? I know I do.) Winnebago have now addressed this documentation failure by adding a sentence or two in the manual, warning you about the way the cruise control functions.

However, as far as I know, the Winnebago folks have not learned their lesson. They continue to leave themselves open to future litigation by anyone who happens to drive their Winnebago off the edge of a cliff, expecting it to fly, or who drives their vehicle into the sea, expecting it to turn into a submarine. I don't see either of those eventualities covered in the handbook anywhere. And believe me, I've looked.

Does the story of Mr. Grazinski sound familiar? That's possibly because it is just that -- a story. Mr. Grazinski and his motor home never existed; they are, in fact, the stars of an urban legend, outed by Jan Harold Brunvand and reported by Barbara and David P. Mikkelson, the conscientious folks at Snopes.com. The snollygoster in this case is the person who invented this story and set it loose on the Internet.

All the same, you were surely a little outraged when you read the story, weren't you? Well, hold on to your hat, because this next one is the real McSnollygoster.

Roy L. Pearson Jr. is an Administrative Law Judge in the Washington, D.C. area. In 2005, he sued a mom-and-pop dry cleaners run by a Korean family, the Chungs, for $65,462,500 because they lost a pair of his pants. Judge Pearson calculated the amount of his claim on the basis of every possible legal dimension of cost you can imagine. The poor man was so distressed by the loss of his pants that, when he took the stand to testify in court, he broke down in tears. Despite this show of emotion, the case was dismissed and damages were awarded to the dry cleaner.

Having lost in the D.C. Superior Court, Judge Pearson took his case to the Court of Appeals where . . . he lost again! He then requested that the appeals court re-hear the case, which they refused to do. His only possible recourse for justice now is the U.S. Supreme Court, or, failing that, The International Court of Justice in The Hague. Go for it, Roy!

 
 
snollygoster, from Taegan Goddard's Political Dictionary:

A politician who will go to any lengths to win public office, regardless of party affiliation or platform.

One of the earliest references comes from the Columbus Dispatch in October 28, 1895 which defined the term as "a fellow who wants office, regardless of party, platform, or principles, and who . . . gets there by sheer force of monumental talknophical asumnancy."

According to Vintage Vocabulary, President Harry Truman revived its use  in 1952. Talking about politicians who like to make a show of public prayer, he said, "I wish some of these snollygosters would read the New Testament and perform accordingly."

Time notes Truman's tone "left no doubt that a snollygoster was a low creature indeed, but few, if any, of his hearers knew what snollygoster meant."

A related term is carpetbagger.

Dear Word Detective: Can you say what "snollygoster" and "snurge" mean? -- David.

Sure, no problem. A "snollygoster" is a person, most especially a politician, who is motivated in all things by personal ambition and greed rather than admirable principles of duty and self-sacrifice. Regarding politicians, that description is, of course, largely redundant, but while most politicians may be "snollygosters," not all "snollygosters" are politicians. Many of them sell things on eBay, for instance.

A "snurge" is a despicable person, especially a sneaky little toady whose greatest joy comes from ratting out other people to the teacher, boss or other authority figure in order to curry favor with those in power. It seems reasonable to assume that (if they survive their childhoods) many "snurges" grow up to be "snollygosters."

But while defining "snollygoster" and "snurge" is a piece of cake, determining their origins is a bit more difficult. "Snollygoster" is an American invention, first appearing in print, according to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), in the mid-19th century. The OED pegs the first appearance of "snurge" in print as being in 1933, but such slang terms are frequently commonly used in speech for years or even decades before they turn up in print. "Snurge" appears to be more commonly heard in the UK than in the US.

The most likely origin of "snollygoster" is another, very similar, word -- "snallygaster." From the German "schnelle (quick)" plus "geister (spirits)," a "snallygaster" was a mythical monster (a giant reptilian bird, according to one source) said, among residents of Maryland, to attack and eat livestock as well as the occasional child. Just how Maryland's version of Rodan came to be associated with avaricious politicians is anyone's guess, but the resemblance of "snollygoster" to "snallygaster" is too striking to ignore. There is a slight dating problem with this theory, in that "snallygaster" has (according to the OED) first been found in print in 1940 (versus 1846 for its presumptive descendant "snollygoster"), but it's entirely plausible that the "snallygaster" had been used to cow disobedient children for at least 100 years before the word made it into print.

The origin of "snurge," unfortunately, is more of a mystery. Perhaps influenced by "sneak," it may well be onomatopoeic or "echoic," invented as an unpleasant little word for a unpleasant little person. According to the eminent etymologist Eric Partridge, "snurge" dates to the 1920s and originally was used in England as slang for a workhouse for the poor, eventually becoming students' and armed services slang for a "twerp."

snoofle - A snoofle is a small fuzzy animal. They come in many colors and different body parts. Some even wear hats. One can be set to a task depending on its abilities, but if it ever completes this task, it will disappear in a colored puff of smoke. As an example, a "guard snoofle" is common; most of them are dark blue, have two legs, and their eyes glow. They also have a nose shaped like a horn and can make loud noises. It can use its glowing eyes to search in the dark and if it finds trouble over what it's guarding, it will honk its nose loudly. But a guard snoofle is only an example -- there are many other kinds of snoofles.

e.g., The purple spy snoofle used its wings to climb the tower and spy on the evil wizard.

snowclone - A deliberate word invention that is not catching on, in spite of persistent promotion by its originators. From Language Log's promotion of "snowclone" to mean "cliche variation."

What is a Snowclone?

Snowclone is the new cliche. To snowclone or not to snowclone, that is the question. Time waits for no snowclone. If all of these sentences sound vaguely familiar, it's because of a literary device called a snowclone. The term snowclone is believed to have been coined in 2004 to describe the practice of transforming cliches, axioms and pop culture catchphrases into modern analogies. By substituting a few key words from the original saying, a writer can put a new context on an old concept.

A snowclone can be formed simply by borrowing a timeworn but familiar cliche and injecting the specific topic into its basic syntax. The movie catchphrase "In space, no one can hear you scream," for example, can be turned into a business-related snowclone: "In space, no one can hear you negotiate." The snowclone works in context because the two catchphrases have a common theme; nothing works in a vacuum. The same formula could be used to create other snowclones: "In X, no one can hear you Y."

Other popular catchphrases and axioms lend themselves to snowclone formation. "Pink is the new black," a familiar fashion axiom, is often turned into a political snowclone: "Liberal is the new moderate," among other concepts. The familiar formula "X is the new Y" can be applied to any number of modern ideas which have replaced older ones. As long as the analogy is structurally sound, the snowclone works as a form of cultural shorthand between writers and readers.

Critics of snowclone usage consider the practice to be an easy way out for professional writers, who should not rely on cliches and catchphrases to prove a point. Because there are literally thousands of familiar phrases which could be converted to a snowclone, writers often rely on a relevant snowclone as a lead into a non-fiction article: "If the Eskimo language has a hundred different words for snow, why can't business leaders settle on one word for their new policy on tariffs?" "To sell or not to sell? That is the question facing homeowners during times of rampant inflation."

As long as the snowclone in question does bring clarity and familiarity to the article, writers should feel free to use the literary device sparingly. If the article becomes overloaded with snowclones, or the writer uses an obscure or unfamiliar snowclone, then the structure of the piece could be weakened. If a snowclone is to be used, it might be best to use it at the beginning or end of an article in order to give it the most impact.

e.g., Too bad the brights are an obvious snowclone. | "To snowclone or not to snowclone?" Is that the question? If it is, I'd suggest not.

snuck - Past tense and past participle of sneak. I was taught that there was no such word as snuck. Miz Reece & Miz Smith: There is now. Usage graph, snuck vs. sneaked. I started grammar school shortly after the time of the sneaked peak.  
 

The Free Online Dictionary: sneak
Usage Note: Snuck is an Americanism first introduced in the 19th century as a nonstandard regional variant of sneaked. Widespread use of snuck has become more common with every generation. It is now used by educated speakers in all regions. Formal written English is more conservative than other varieties, of course, and here snuck still meets with much resistance. Many writers and editors have a lingering unease about the form, particularly if they recall its nonstandard origins. And 67 percent of the Usage Panel disapproved of snuck in our 1988 survey. Nevertheless, an examination of recent sources shows that snuck is sneaking up on sneaked. Snuck was almost 20 percent more common in newspaper articles published in 1995 than it was in 1985. Snuck also appears in the work of many respected columnists and authors: "He ran up huge hotel bills and then snuck out without paying" (George Stade). "He had snuck away from camp with a cabinmate" (Anne Tyler). "I ducked down behind the paperbacks and snuck out" (Garrison Keillor).

e.g., "My husband is an American of Hispanic descent. Perhaps he might want to refer to a country of another origin [in hyphenated form] if he had snuck across the border illegally."
