Schniblet

other word formation type Slang; noun
The small pieces of rubber you find on a turf field.
 
This word is likely just a nonsense syllable followed by the diminutive suffix ‘-let’. As far as I know it is used nearly exclusively by the members and alums of the marching band at Westlake High School. It was likely coined to provide a more specific term for the small rubber pieces which are encountered frequently by marching band students and don’t have a concise name of their own.
Etymology : This word contains the meaningless root ‘Schnib’ and the noun forming suffix ‘-let’. ‘-let’ is from the Old French double diminutive ‘-elet’. ‘-elet’ is a combination of the Old French suffix ‘-et’ added to the noun forming diminutive suffix ‘-el’ from the latin suffix ‘-ellus’. Reference: “-let.” Online Etymology Dictionary, https://www.etymonline.com/word/-…monline_v_50866. Accessed 4 Dec. 2019.
