A sniglet for our times

December 23, 2007

You know that brief musical “fanfare” that cell phones emit when they are turned on or off? I have the perfect word for that. Let’s call it . . . phonefare!

I’d like to see this term gain widespread usage. If Rich Hall were still collecting entries for his books of sniglets, I’d submit it to him. In the absence of that option, perhaps the readers of this blog can help me out by injecting it into their daily conversations.
