Another personal favorite from Miekal And & Xexoxial Editions that involves formal cleverness & fun with words. And's intro on the packaging's j-card:

"sqwording the future

The first edition of INTROGIC ENCLODIACY was created in 1983 & was intended to be a set of "flashcards" for the neologisms in my book KNOWLEDGE SWIRLING MAN TELLS SLOW STORIES. At that time I included only the words on the cards because I had yet to experience definitions for them. Now in 1989 after living with the book & such words I have written mental responses to each word, both assosicative & otherwise. But definitions are temporary, & redefinition by usage is entirely possible. The neologisms are words are sounds which are points of information (or meditation) which lead the user beyond words & concrete meaning."

An example of one of the words:


1. Oath for the laughing bible. 2. Of this people the language used and stood by. 3. The seasonal desire to retract forms of previously corrolated logic & replace with dreams & imaginations that are risky & untested. [A cutup of familiar terminology.]"
