Version 2 [link]


I'm finally finished to collect the pony terms from all aired episodes. Now I can publish the first version of the brony dictionary. :iconfluttershyyayplz: It is still a work in progress and with the growing brony community and more episodes the dictionary will hopefully growing even more.
The dictionary should help new bronies who donít know what some of the pony related terms mean and so it can prevent misunderstandings.

If you have more entries for the dictionary you can post them here and I will add them to the second version.
For new entries please give the number of the chapter (for chapter 1 also the episode number), the word/phrase and the translation or description

For example

Chapter 2:
bro-hoof = bro-fist



If you have also some other ideas (like new chapters) or comments feel free to post them.
Together we can make a great brony dictionary :iconbrohoof1plz::iconbrohoof2plz:

Sorry for the very lare reply^^;

I think one of the most used term for a baby pony is "foal". However, season 6 might give us a new term.

I think a wingboner is when a pegasus's wings are at full spread as an involuntary reaction to something. Usually them getting excited. Its not always smutty, but I've mostly seen it in Rainbow Dash 'shipping. :D

And I agree that clop clop clop is the brony version of fap fap fap

Awesome dictionary, and "Its Time to pony-up" I can't help but think of them saying "Man up!" cause of the game in HUB, when they say "Pony up:heart:! "

Blank flank = loli :icontrollfaceplz:

Also, I think colt cuddler is a stupid name. I like filly fooler because it's a clever alliteration: It's ambiguous in terms of sex, and can be used as a derogatory term for lesbians. Colt cuddler sounds so babyish and nonthreatening, which is important in most good shipping fiction for conflict and drama.
I propose the term: "Colt Clincher," or alternately "Colt 'Cator (short for fornicator)," or, "Bronco Bender."
I wanted to propose, "courter," but that doesn't sound too threatening either, and the alternatives are a little undesirably strong, but at least can still be used as derogatory terms.

Any suggestions are welcome.

exiana Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I always figured there were several terms in use, with fillyfooler and coltcuddler being moderate terms that could be used offensively and inoffensively, and stronger words that are only used to be offensive (in my case Gelding for males and Jackmere for female.)

:iconsweetiebelle-fim:
SweetieBelle-FiM Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011
As I said, I've always thought filly fooler was kind of clever. I just don't see the same thing for colt cuddler, I can't see it as an offensive term. I mean, maybe it has a bit of an emasculating strength to it, but I still think better words could be thought up.

Gelding isn't a half bad idea though.
Reply
:iconexiana:
exiana Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
right, but then again I'm rarely actually seeing "fillyfooler" being used in a derogatory manner in and of itself. Whenever I do see it used negatively, the negativity comes more from the implied tone it is said in than the word itself, which is why I considered stronger words for it as well.

Jackmare is basically like calling a female horse a male donkey, or would be like calling a woman a big ape, hence that other term... perhaps I should release a note on what some inherently supportive, inherently derogative, generally neutral, and other phrases it would be so the vocabulary in the fandom can be more versatile...

Another brony term for Cowboy is : Cowcolt ...Like AJ as a ''Cowcolt'' hat.

As seen in a recent story.

chapter 4: general equestrian terms of note
for instance,

"colt: a male horse between the age of 2 and 4 years."
"fetlock: the 'knuckle' of the horse leg"
"filly: a female horse between the ages of 2 and 4 years."
"foal: a horse under one year of age"
"gelding: a castrated stallion."
"mare: a female horse above the age of 4 years."
"mule: the infertile offspring of a male donkey and a female horse."
"stallion: a male horse above the age of 4 years."
"yearling: a horse between the age of one and 2 years."

stuff like that which would be relevant to the show

At the moment this will be the name of the new chapter:
Chapter 4: general equestrian terms in reality (may not hold true in the show)

When I find a good prologue for the dictionary the name of chapter 4 will be shorter;-)


thanks for your help^^

Eh, I'm sure a few stallions who decided to have a vasectomy might refer to themselves as such anyway. not the same, but easiest way to get the point across.

Yeah, it's likely that, when available, infertility magic is far more preferable to surgical options, lol.

It's faster and unicorns can also undo the spell when the male change it mind

well that and it's likely much safer for a female to have the spell done than have the surgical option taken.
