See dilly dally. Procrastinate, especially in speaking; a failure to get to the point or a purposeful avoidance of making one's point. Can also be used in place of dilly dally in avoid an unpleasant task, such as a chore, although dilly dally would be better here.

The loss of two parents or all parents, especially is literature. See bastardise.
Words like snowballing, which is an urban sexual term, are considered orphaned because the combined meaning has nothing to do with snow or balls. Well, maybe balls. The term orphaned would not apply to words that are made up entirely. fo shizzle my nizzle could be considered orphaned or bastardized since the phrase has roots in real words.

Items that go in the refrigerator or freezer. This word is necessary because not all perishables are refrigeraed, and not all refridgables are perishable. I added the "d" as in "fridge" to aid pronunciation; otherwise, it would be "refrigables" which would want a "hard g."
Wife to husband: Would you bring the groceries in from the car and put the refridgables away?

A method of mining. A continuous miner removes a long column of coal, letting the top of the mine fall behind it. Subsidence is more or less immediate, as opposed to "room and pillar" mining where the roof is supported and subsidence is delayed. This should not be hyphenated as a compound modifier. Hyphenating it makes it a long wall. While it may seem like a long wall, room and pillar mining would also produce long walls and are mined with similar equipment. "Long-wall" mining is not as specific as "longwall mining" as a technique. It's time to drop the hyphens in longwall, coalbed, daycare and other common words.
The employee is experienced in the longwall method of coal mining. We will be mining this site longwall. The drop in the terrain is due to longwall mining.

"Bope" doesn't really mean anything and can be used in a variety of ways. Sometimes prefaced with a chuckle or a chortle. When I was in high school, a small group of people used this word but it didn't really stick. That would have been around 1982. Sometimes used in place of duh. Bope is a funny sounding word, but it's more in the way that you say it.
Somebody trips amusingly. A boy standing nearby lets out a small chortle, like a whispered snort, followed by, "Bope!"
