Here is how you make a blended word:
-Take two words with different meanings (“Spanish” and “English”)
-Combine the letters in some way to make a new word (“Spanglish”)
-The new word represents a combination of the sounds and meanings of the original words (“Spanglish”: switching between Spanish and English in a conversation).
Below are some more examples. Try to guess what the original words and meaning might be before reading the explanation.
Smog is the combination of “smoke” and “fog.” It is a type of air pollutant often seen in big cities like Los Angeles, CA.
