FICTIONARY

noun; blending and clipping
A dictionary of non-standard words. Possible reason used: “Fictionary” is a very creative word. It is hard to come up with such a word in a moment. The user probably heard this word before and wanted to sound very smart. I surely was impressed with the usage of this word. Dictionary entry: Fictionary, N. (“If you want to know the meaning of a slang word, look it up in a fictionary and not in a dictionary.”)
 
“Oh, so you are supposed to create a fictionary.”
Etymology : Composed of (probably): Clipping and Blending ‘fiction’ (not real) + ‘dictionary’ (collection of words)
Source : I was telling my friend about our word journal. she said:
