When the BFG and Sophie are catching unbelievable, unusual, remarkable dreams, they come across a terrible, dreadful trogglehumper! "Trogglehumpers are worse than nightmares", the BFG bellows to Sophie in a dark, dark voice. So instead of blowing the horrific dream into a peacefully sleeping child's mind, he gives the trogglehumper to the tallest, meanest, grumpiest giant in all of Giant Country-the Fleshlumpeater. The humongous giant dreams about a brave, weapened "giant-hunter," also known as Jack (from the well-known fantasy, Jack and the Beanstalk). A trogglehumper is usually thrashing around violently, with a floating, scarlet body in the middle of the crazily thrown-around lines protecting the middle. I would never like to have a trogglehumper in reality, but I might not because the BFG is the only dream-catching giant, and the only nice giant, so he might not give me the shiver of my life-and the century!
Scrumpdiddlyumptious is said a lot between conversations about the evil giants eating human beings. Scrumpdiddlyumptious means that something has a delightful taste. As seen in the picture, a boy just took a big bite out of his chocolate-chip cookie. He's showing he likes the flavor by saying MMM! which shoud be read with loud exclamation to show delight in the taste of the cookie from the boy's perspective. Scrumpdiddlyumptious is showing flavor in the text when the BFG explains the evil giants are saying to him that the human beings are scrumpdiddlyumtious every day when they're devouring their unfair meal. Scrumpdiddlyumptious is also the longest word in The BFG, beng 20 letters long. So remember to use this unusual word in your school vocabulary and everyday speaking. I think The BFG is a scrumpdiddlyumptious, interesting, interactive bopok to read!
A bunderbluss is a nightshirt. Well, that's what the BFG says. Bunderblusses are basically female pajamas that are like prom dresses you would wear to a dance. The nickname for a bunderbluss and a nightshirt is "nightie". However, all of these names came from England, where all the evil giants are held in confinement. Even though the giants are held in captivity, they can holler out things whenever needed, like "Hey, can I get some food around here?"' or "Zookeeper, the Gizzardgulper is biting me!" Sometimes they might use unusual words from their language, such as nightie. They might say it in this sentence: "Um, excuse me, but are there any gigantic nighties up there for my bedtime?" So that's what the English words bunderbluss, nightshirt, and nightie mean!
Whopps-whiffling means that someting is either wacky, insane, unrealistic, or just plain crazy. Seen in the picture, a boy is thinking of a man who is doing parkour and then jumping of a cliff into a lake. That would be a dopey thing to do because the nice, caring man could die. Then all the happiness would be removed from the man's lively family. Anyway, whoppswhifling can also be used in a sentence of opinion and perspective. When Sophie came up with the idea to stop all the evil giants from eating all the people in England, the BFG said that it was the most whopps-whiffling idea he had ever heard.That's what whopps-whiffling means!
Cattypiddlers is the BFG's way of saying catipillers. This helps me notice that the BFG says words is English, but he adds letters such as D's and N's. This explains the way he pronounces elephant and crocadiles-elefant and crocadowndillies. The BFG also only puts the extra letters to the end of the word because the beginning of catipillers is cat, while the beginning of cattypiddlers starts with cat. This will also help me make my brother even more CRAZY, when everyone at school hears him using improper grammar. So that's what cattypiddlers means!
Snozzcumbers are the giant's only food they can possibly eat-unless a fearless giant strodes into the human world and steals nutricious food. It's so dry in Giant Country, snozzcumbers are the only thing that can grow. The water there is only a mirage. The only thing that lies between the flat land is the bones of oxes, abandoned carraiges, and the giants sleeping ground. Snozzcumbers are very disgusting to all of the giants-including the BFG. When the Bloodbottler accused the BFG of a crime, the BFG persuades the Bloodbottler to eat a terrible snozzcumber.But the BFG never knew that Sophie was hidden in the center of the snozzcumber. So when the Bloobottler takes a bite out of the horrid vegetable, he takes Sophie with her. When he tastes the disgusting thing, he spits out the snozzcumber leftovers from his mouth, (and Sophie) , threatens te BFG, and runs out of the BFG's lair like a crazy person...or crazy giant. These are what snozzcumbers are!!!
Phizzwizards are peaceful, happy, unmistakebly incredible dreams that everyone wants to have everyday. When the BFG and Sophie are catching dreams, the first dream they cacth is a golden phizzwizard. The amazing part is that the BFG can control what will happen in the phizzwizard. The way he does that is by writing a paragraph that would go with the kind of dream he was writing about. If it's a phizzwizard, the BFG will make the dream about whatever you feel like hearing. That's what a phizzwizard is!
