The article deals with words which have been deformed on purpose, so that their spelling imitated certain phonetic phenomena, e.g. lengthening of speech sounds, syllabizing, and stopping the articulation before the end of a word. Attention is drawn mainly to the role of linguistic invention and convention in forming this kind of words, their linguistic status, and the problems they arise in text processing.
