Croosle

Definition: To whimper like an infant (just waking up); to speak confidentially with another; to gossip and flatter.

Pronunciation: KREW-sull

Origin: Modern English.

Why this word?

I like the variety in its meanings. “Croosle” could identify that sound people can’t help making when sleep-drugged in those sluggish moments of just barely being awake, or the excited, chattering not-whisper of someone eagerly sharing a secret, or the high-pitched, syrupy whine of a sycophant blowing verbal smoke up someone’s ass.

“Croosle”. It’s a cuttlefish of a word, owning three very different emotions that humans can express.

And I think that’s awesome.

How to use the word croosle in a sentence?

Example: The baby made a little croosle of a cry at the sound of the creaking door.
