Portmanteaux (blend words)

I have written about A Word A Day before. It is one of my favourite emails every day. I never fail to learn something!

Last week’s theme was blended words (my favourite of which are blurple (blue + purple) and greige (grey + beige)).

  1. I had never heard about the word “portmanteaux” before. It almost sounds like a French word though the spelling is different.
    Any idea where that word comes from?
