New Word For The Day

phlogiston theory


"Phlogisticated” substances are those that contain phlogiston and, on being burned, are “dephlogisticated.” The ash of the burned material is held to be the true material

This is my new word of the day. Let's see how I can use it in a sentence.

"Oh my goodness! I have been dephlogisticated! Call the police!"

"My plants are in need of an extra squirt of phlogisticate."

"She was the epitome of phlogistication at the New Years Eve Party."

"I ate too much phlogiston and now I have the runs."

"Phlogiston is located halfway between Crapistan and Forgetmenotville. It's principle export is phlogs, flugels, blogs, cogs, and burpguns."

"Phlogiston: phillistines who blog online."
