f you know the meaning of this word, you'll still appreciate this story.
When I compose music on my computer, I usually like to improvise the music-including the title. I usually type random letters to form the title of my pieces, so all of them have strange yet spontaneous names, such as "nyhas", or "atella". And then one day, I decided that what I did recently was kind of like jazz, but it's not, since I have never studied jazz chords and progressions, so I decided to name my next piece "zazzy"--meaning that it's kind of "jazzy", but it's not, so with my initial of my last name Zhang, I replaced 'j' with 'z'--it turned into zazzy.
A few days later I was watching the tv series Big Bang Theory, and I shockingly discovered that this is actually a word. When Sheldon temporarily ended his 'relationship' with Amy Farrah Fowler, he got a lot of cats to compensate his emotion. He called one of them "zazzles", because he was quite "zazzy", to quote his original words. No one on the show doubted what it meant.
Then I found out that this word is not to be explained by normal dictionaries-it's just not in there. There are people online who posed the question of the meaning of this word, and they were puzzled how did he come up with it. I was just laughing inside because I have invented some word that the smart Dr.Sheldon Cooper also came up with.
I let it go for a while, until today, I incidentally decided to look up another word that I made up, "zasper". I named one of my website with this name, and wanted to see whether if it's a real word. It turned out that in an online dictionary called the Urban Dictionary, it's there, the word 'zasp', which means something like poke a girl's nose.
Then I saw zazzy is there too!Here is what it says:
ZAZZY-A basic cross between "zany", "pizazz" and "snazzy" to create an adjective suggesting that something is too great to be confined to one word.
e.g.:"Did you hear about that trip to Holland? Everyone's coming back saying it was completely zazzy!"
There is even a second meaning:
something shiny or flashy.
e.g.That's some zazzy silver you got there.
e.g.Forget bling, I got zazzy.
That's the end of my story.
