vurp

verb blending and clipping
vurp, v. is the combination of burping and vomiting in ones mouth. A vurp is a small scale vomit, and does not actually cause the person to spit up or expel anything from the mouth, it is simply a disgusting sensation that is not quite puke. A vurp can be felt in the stomach and leaves the person feeling ill and also with an off taste in their mouth. A vurp may often lead to a full blown vomit session, but normally it's not too serious and can be disregarded as a one time thing.
 
Vurp is commonly used by people to describe the sensation of vomiting and burping at the same time, it is a clipping and blending of the words vomit and burp because both of these verbs are experienced at the same time, it is a combination of the two actions. It is an unpleasant sensation that leaves a gross taste in ones mouth.
Etymology : Vurp is a blending and clipping of the words vomit and burp. Vomit has been clipped to 'v' and the 'b' from burp has been clipped to form this word. Vomit comes from latin, vomitaire and is the act of expelling the contents of the stomach through the mouth, it was first recorded in 1386 and vomit has kept its meaning. Burp's usage was first recorded in 1932 as a noun or verb and was taken from American English and still retains it's initial meaning, it is a belch or the action and sound of expelling air from the stomach.
