Dictionary: SanityFound

In life so often we come up with weird words and sayings, as I have mentioned before I often have impediment moments often resulting in myself and others using them (quite possibly to save me from embarrassment).

I have been told that often the words I use are not decipherable or easily understood either in their ambiguity or spelling so here I present you with the Audlish Dictionary, some words I accidentally invented, others are from the south African slang, some are my interpretations of words already in existence and some are heard from other peoples moments that I loved and adopted … hope it helps 🙂

If you read any words you don’t understand please let me know and I’ll add them – I am often in my own world and forget that I speak Audlish… 🙂
