e-dict: emp

If you’ve been reading the book so far, you no doubt have come across Ean’s distinctive use of language.  Word play, portmanteaus, neologisms, alliteration, etc. are basically protein shakes for Ean’s writing muscles.  While most of this language can be understood in context and with a superficial knowledge of pop culture, we thought it would be fun to create a lexicon of Ean’s slang.

Emp (n., v.)

-neologism from the acronym EMP (electro-magnetic pulse)

E.g.:

“And with that thought Huntar emped harder than he had ever emped before. Red light erupted in the space between his hands and The Chalet, shooting him backwards through the air.”

Variations:

to emp

an emp

an empist or an emper
