    Default What does the word "opinionation" mean?

    Hi!

    What does the word "opinionation" mean? I've heard this word in the song, but can't find the translation in any dictionaries. Does "opinionation" = "opinion"?

    Thanks!

    "Opinionation" doesn't exist as a word. Which song is it from?

    Well)) Actually it's the theme of TV-show Blossom.

    Lyric
    "My Opinionation" (by Mike Post and Steve Geyer)
    Don't know about the future, that's anybody's guess.
    Ain't no good reason for getting all depressed.
    Buy up your pad and pencil, I'll give you a piece of my mind,
    In my opinionation, the sun is gonna surely shine.

    May be this word exists in american enlglish?)

    I too think it's a made-up word.

    If someone is opinionated, it means that they are given to expressing their opinion too readily, which usually means they are disliked for being outspoken. It also implies that they are intolerant of someone else's, different opinion.

    The state of being opinionated or act of expressing such an opinion could perhaps be described as opinionation.

    Maybe!

    I have searched this word in all the dictionaries on line and the only reference that I can find is to the theme song from the tv show that you mentioned.
    I am sure that it is a word made up by the writers of the song.

    Funny enough, I thought the word was neat in that it contained the word "nation" and registered opinionation.us with the intent of creating a website for people to blog their opinions about various topics. Sadly, I never found the time to create the site, though I'm sure there are enough of similar sites out there already.
