A Guide to Sniffyz's Punzles. A Pun-tastic Wordplay Adventure

Introduction: The Art of Word Fusion

Language, a dynamic and ever-evolving entity, constantly delights us with its ability to morph and create new expressions. At the intersection of linguistic innovation and playful wit, we find portmanteaus – words born from the clever fusion of two or more existing words. Think "brunch" blending "breakfast" and "lunch," or "smog" marrying "smoke" and "fog." These linguistic marvels simplify expression while infusing a touch of whimsy into our everyday conversations.
