Fallujanate

adjective; derivation
1. To destroy, mangle, eradicated, kick the ass of 2. To make like Fallujah (in first definition context) This means to beat the crap out of, to invade, or to destroy something of value, something large, or some geographic region, similar to what was done ins Fallujah. The root FALLUJAH comes from the proper name ‘Fallujah’ of the city in Iraq that was invaded not long ago. –NATE comes from –ATE, i.e. to gloss as a verb. The ‘n’ is added by allomorphy for voicing and articulation. Since the action has been carried out to definition in one city, it seems apt to use a word that includes the name of Fallujah so one knows exactly what is meant. Possible models include “ERADICATE” (to rid of), ELUCIDATE, etc. Here, “to make like Fallujah.”
 
We’re going to fallujanate more cities, man.
Etymology : [derivation of the city FALLUJAH with morpheme –ATE to verb]
