Funny Words


Adjective used to describe something neither overwhelming nor underwhelming. In other words, something that's just right.

Again, not a word at all. The verb to whelm (and it's resulting adjective whelming) are quite different. Did you just make this up?

Au contraire mon frere! It is a legitimate word - Ryan just had it dead wrong! This is what it means: Whelm or Whelming – verb (used with object) 1. to submerge; engulf. 2. to overcome utterly; overwhelm: whelmed by misfortune. –verb (used without object) 3. to roll or surge over something, as in becoming submerged.
