…I predict that we’ll see an uptick in “Franken- prefixes” because of Frankenstorm and it’s around Halloween?
Anyhow, I wanted to learn more about how the term Frankenstorm got coined–who coined it? What gave rise to its name? Was this going to be a monster of a storm or was it going to be a miss-mashed mess of a storm?
It’s only natural for me to be this inquisitive since I coined the phrase “Frankenboobie” to denote the slight disfigurement of my right boob when I had the tumor removed.
So allow me to say it, sorta, first: A Franken prefix is a prefix when used denotes a “monstrous” tone. Something that modifies a noun to speak to its hybrid/miss-mashed/mixed up sum of all its parts.
