|Brew Your Own Finnegan's Wake|
(or Spawn Your Own Jabberwocky)
(Excerpt from Joyce's Finnegan's Wake)
With Finnegan's Wake, Joyce doesn't constrain himself to using real words: he makes a lot of them up. Usually, the new words are combinations of fragments of previously existing words. For example "cheerycherrily", a combination of: cheery, cherry, and merrily or "assbawlveldts", a combination of: ass, bawl and veldts.
Through using multiple Cut 'n' Mix input tracks, the Word Shredder and track GLUE, you can quickly create a vast array of completely new (albiet largely nonsensical) words! Here is an example that was churned out in a matter of seconds:
* You can read Joyce's masterpiece of experimental writing online with Finnegans Web.
** Another legendary example of the use of made-up or nonsense words in English Literature can be read online here: Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.
