About

Portmanteaus are a special type of blended word. A words made with parts (sounds)  of 2 different words. 

Smog -  Smoke + Fog. 

Here is a nice video to introduce the term. Also with advanced learners see this TED video of Erin McLean - Make New Words.

You can also introduce the term and concept with this book on Gif Lingua.  Try the quiz and flashcards too.

See the attached worksheets that will get students practicing making standard portmanteaus and also being creative and making their own. 

{by the way - Portmanteau was a word coined by the very creative Lewis Carroll).
