Product Description

A portmanteau word is a linguistic blend of words in which parts of two or more words are combined into a new word. This activity aims to encourage students to think about the word's origin. A standard 52-card deck is needed.

Each player gets a printout of the first page. A player draws a card from a deck and tries to get their teammate(s) to guess the portmanteau word without mentioning any of the words it is composed from (which are Taboo). For each word successfully guessed a point is awarded. The team with the most points wins.
