jigglification

verb; derivation
To make an object jiggly, especially by means of shaking it. This word is used to indicate a process for making an object jiggly. If an object, such as rubber, is not jiggly, one can make it jiggly by shaking it back and forth. This is the process known as “jigglification”. The derivation of “jigglification” is a combination of the verb “jiggle” and the inflectional suffix “-fication”. The two morphemes are then linked with an “i”. The word was invented for humor and will not likely be in widespread use.
 
To make rubber jiggly, we use a process called jigglification.
Etymology : jiggly from Modern English jig, Origin Unknown; + -fication from Latin -ficatio, -fication-, from -ficatus, past participle of -ficare, 'to make, from' -ficus, -fic.
