Transcript of The BFG
died in 1990 Throughout his lifetime, Roald Dahl had written numerous books that are still popular today 12/13/10 The BFG is ALL THUMBS at English and often mixes up tricky words Some of his best known children's stories are: Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, and The Twits Gobblefunk! Roald Dahl is famous for his made-up language, Gobblefunk, which he uses in several of his books. Some words he uses often are: "'Music is very good for the digestion,' the Queen said." "...'Do play something.' 'I has Her Majester's permission!' cried the BFG, and all at once he let fly with a whizzpopper that sounded as though a bomb had exploded in the room." "...'Whoopee!' shouted the BFG. 'That is better than bagglepipes, is it not, Majester?'" "...'I prefer bagpipes,' she said. But she couldn't stop herself from smiling (Dahl 171)." Blabbersnitch: A creature that lives at the bottom of the sea Crodscollop: A mouth-watering flavor Svollop: To destroy something Buggles: Completely Crazy!

'Oh no! Oh gosh! Oh help!' She spat it out quickly. 'It tastes of frogskins!' she gasped. 'And rotten fish!' 'Worse than that!' cried the BFG, roaring with laughter. 'To me it is tasting of clockcoaches and slimewanglers (Dahl 51).'"
