A portmanteau word is a contraction of two words or a group of words. To create a portmanteau word, remove the end (the last syllables) of the first word and the beginning (the first syllable) of the second word before concatenating the two parts to form a new invented word.
Example: BRITAIN + EXIT => BREXIT
The dCode portmanteau creator allows you to use up to 3 words and test all permutations to create the ideal invented word.
The contraction should apply with the vowels to facilitate the reading of the new word. It may also be interesting to identify letters (vowels or consonants) present in both parts of the word to merge them.
Example: BRAD + ANGELINA => BRANGELINA
