    When my oldest son was 8, his teacher read him a story about children lying about each other at recess. When she was done, she asked him what the story was about:

    "Defamation of character".

    A few words strung together, but I still think it qualifies here.

    (She actually called me mid day, laughing, not being able to wait until after school to tell me.)

    Scone.

    I like the arguments it causes, since nobody can agree on whether it's pronounced scone or scone. I always go with scone personally.

    Google can't find it but I have thought it is a word since a teacher told me as a teenager. It is the sound of a tyre on a road and it seems was coined by Nevil Shute in one of his novels. I have never known how to spell it however and have never really had any other opportunities to use it.
