I was recently asked, nay outgrabed into defining a difference between gibberish and jabberwocky.
There is no truly defining definition between the two and I sought to give it the old vorpal try.
Both are nonsense but jabberwocky has to make sense in its own nonsensical way. Like a malapropism.
he difference between Gibberish and Jabberwocky. Both are nonsense yes but Jabberwocky has to make sense in a nonsensical way.
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
Somehow it makes sense.
