A form of "Pig Latin"-like slang in which words are formed by spelling them out, adding the suffix "-op" to the consonants, and pronouncing the long form of the vowels. Also known as "bop talk."
Bop talk was something of a schoolyard fad in the Central Connecticut area in the early '60s. I have no idea if it originated there, or if it ever existed elsewhere.
For example, the term "Bop talk" would be:
"Hop-i, hop-o-wop a-rop-e yop-o-u?" ("Hi, how are you?")
"I-mop dop-o-i-nop-gop fop-i-nop-e." ("I'm doing fine.")
"Lop-e-top-sop gop-o dop-rop-i-nop-kop-i-nop-gop sop-o-mop-e-wop-hop-e-rop-e a-fop-top-e-rop top-hop-e gop-a-mop-e." ("Let's go drinking somewhere after the game.")
"Nop-o -- I wop-a-nop-nop-a gop-e-top hop-i-gop-hop rop-i-gop-hop-top nop-o-wop!" ("No -- I wanna get high right now!")
"Cop-o-o-lop! Gop-o-top a-nop-y-top-hop-i-nop-gop o-nop yop-o-u?" ("Cool! Got anything on you?")
With a bit of practice you can learn to converse quite easily and to form long words and sentences without too much trouble.
