[bksvol-discuss] Re: Editing with BNPK

I think Ann Parsons was the first to use it, so maybe she can answer.

When I read it I just assumed it was a made up word. Is there a word for 
made up words?

My vocabulary has failed me. When I was in school every time I took one of
those standardized tests I would always land in the very highest percentile
on the vocabulary section. I am always hearing people tell me that I use big
words. All this has led me to be pretty confident of my vocabulary. However,
in just the last couple of days I have seen a word in a couple of emails
that I was unfamiliar with, klooge. From context I surmise that it means a
work-around. Since this is the second time I have encountered it, though, I
thought I would google it. I used the Google define feature. In both emails
in which it occurred I note that it is spelled in two different ways. One
spelling is k l u g e. The other spelling is k l o o g e. I googled both and
for the first I got a definition stating that it is a clever or wise man. I
got no definition for the second spelling. Since even the first definition
does not seem to have anything to do with the contexts in which I came
across it I think it might be slang. I am intrigued though. Can someone let
me know what the correct spelling actually is and what its origin might be
and exactly what it means?

I was able to retrieve my file by going to Wordpad on my PC and opening
the file I'd copied from the BN, then re-saving it under a different name.
 Klooge! But at least I have my work.
I'd still like to know why Word won't open the file directly, though.
