Understanding Athelind's Argot: "Portmantypeau"

When you're thinking if two words of similar meaning, and wind up typing something that's a blend of both.

Example: When "slimmer" and "trimmer" combine to become "stimmer".

(see Portmanteau.)

(Technically, this doesn't count as an "Argot" post, as it's something I just coined and decided to preserve. But close enough.)
