    The word trombonification has become common language at my brass band...

    Definition- to make something trombone like in nature (needs work, suggest help!!)

    It needs to be shared with the world!! Please help us on our mission to get it into the dictionary to spread the word!!! It can only go in if more people use it so add on your words of support!!
    Don't deny your band never trombonifies something?! ;)

    Due to a recent lack of trombones at band, the Baritones had to cover some of their parts, but that word was never used where perhaps it should have been!!

    Glad to hear it ain't just our band where trombonisities are occuring!:tongue: Keep your eyes peeled for them, they can happen anywhere, anywhen!! They're so strangely wrong!

    Spread the word people, we'll only be heard if its used!!!

    Google manages to find 3 entries for 'Trombonification' ....

    This page of tMp is, of course, top of the list, and the third page seems to be thinking up names for a trombone ensemble so is logical but I haven't a clue how the word got into some sort of spoof theoretical physics page.

    Google's bots seem to be getting a bit slow.

    Trombonify has one entry - NOT tMp :eek: , but the blog of the principle trombonist in Gloucestershire Youth Orchestra.

    Trombonisities isn't there at all yet.

    If you trombonify something, what does this actually mean?

    Let the note slowly slide into tune?
    Play at only one volume?
    Let that volume be too loud?
    Unless it's a solo?
    Refuse to play semiquavers?
