American writer, speaker, and entrepreneur
We're very hip-hop. We're into trends and quick things and what's new and even words have a fad to them. Being quick to join words is part of what's hip, what's cool, what's new. That's how we talk now. ... [The] portmanteau is an expression of our need to label or describe new things in order to explain or understand them. It's a way to identify things quickly.
