Scandilific

adjective; blending
Describe one who is terrific at spreading scandal. This nonce word was most likely used by Ankur because he wanted to describe the fact that Shivanni was excellent at spreading scandalous rumors, and instead of using the word scandalous, which has more of a negative connotation, he derived the word scandilific, which to him seems like a more positive word. However, scandilific was probably formed by analogy to the word scandalous. The positive connotation of the word scandilific is probably rooted in the positive connotation of the word terrific from which it is formed.
 
Shivanni is so scandilific.
Etymology : scandilific. Blending of scandal + terrific
