    Selfie's Children: The Productive "-fie" Suffix

    A selfie, in its purest form, is a picture of one person: yourself. But since many people like to take pictures of themselves with other folks, math has broadened the trend. A picture taken with one friend — often your bestie — is called a twofie. Here's an array of twofies on Tumblr. There are also threefies, fourfies, fivefies, and sixfies. In theory, this trend could spiral on into infinity — or to whatever is the maximum number of people who can fit in one photo. If you don't feel like counting, just call it a grelfie (group selfie).

    Other -fie words feature critters, places, and things. Here's a smorgasbord of catfies. Due to allergies, I'm more of a dogfie man. The employed take workfies; gym rats take gymfies or welfies (workout selfies). At the end (or the beginning) of a long day, an Instragram-lover might take a bedfie. Proud hat-wearers take hatfies, while enjoyers of a popular alcoholic beverage take beerfies, which could also be considered drelfies (drunk selfies). And the recent winter weather has produced snowfies.

    Finally, if you're still not convinced this trend can swim out of the shallow pool of self-promotion, consider some words I've seen coined by a few writers, including this tweeter: "What's a selfie when another person takes it? A friendie? An otherie? Sounds dangerous."

    We could all use more friendies, and I believe it was Jesus who said, "Put your otheries before your selfies."


    Holy cow! The word othery really exists! What happened to the plain photo?
    Ζωή σου είναι ό,τι έδωσες
    τούτο το κενό είναι ό,τι έδωσες
    το άσπρο χαρτί.

    'Move over selfie, this town ain't big enough for the both of us-ie': Usie becomes the new name for a group selfie

    Ομαδικό σέλφι, δηλαδή. Σε κάθε περίπτωση, δεν το βλέπω να πιάνει το άσι στα ελληνικά
    The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge".

    Άκου εκεί usie, οι αγράμματοι! Ο εσωτερικός πληθυντικός του selfie θα έπρεπε να δίνει selvesie!

    Με τέτοια μούρη πώς να μη θέλεις να απαθανατίζεσαι;

    Στην επικαιρότητα, η ιστορία έχει συνέχεια:

    Σε ποιον ανήκει η φωτογραφία;
    Στα δικαστήρια για τον πίθηκο, την selfie του και την Wikipedia

    Άκουσα το "έλα να βγάλουμε σελφιά" χτές το βράδυ. Εγκρίνω την ελληνοποίηση (και γιατί όχι "σελφουριά", "σελφαλίκι", "σελφατζής" κτλ)!

    Θα προτιμούσα: σελφιλίκι, σελφιτζής (βλ. και σχόλιο #44).
