My List of Animalish Words
In my book I wrote:
(In addition to sheepish, which means “sort of embarrassed,” I know piggish and wolfish. I wonder if there are other animalish words? I am putting a list of real and made-up ones on my website. You can help.)
Here’s how you can help. In your comments below, tell me your animalish word (real or made-up) along with: 1) a definition of what that word means or should mean, and 2) a sentence that can be fun or clever.
For example, I’m going to start with snailish, which I don’t think is a word, but if it were a word, it would mean really slow.
My grandfathers, neither of whom can run, had a totally snailish footrace.
Or how about eagleish, which I think would mean having excellent eyesight.
No one messes around in class because my eagleish teacher sees everything.
Go for it!
(Read over the comment list first to see what other kids have written. Some of them are really good, really clever, and really funny,)
How about monkeying? Like. . . “Stop monkeying around!” I get that a lot. . . Oh, and my name is pronounced ‘Ava’. I’m sorry if that’s random.
Peacockish would mean proud,rude,snotty, or stuck up
I totally agree.
I found out that doggish is a word and it means a person being bad tempered or snappish.
should mean happy or squirmy
In class I always feel shrimpish.
I think “shrimpish” would mean sort of tiny.
Birdie-the”ball” used for badminton
Foxy and my name is pronounced usher.
Very cool name, I think.
Thanks for the compliment
