M-ticated

mul*ti*cat*ed [mulh-tuh-kate-ehd] verb

Arithmetic. Used by M to find the product of two numbers by multiplication, as in “two multicated by eight is sixteen.” Also works very well for tugging on the heartstrings of Mom, who usually corrects this in response, as in “yes, two multiplied by eight is sixteen,” but can also find herself using “multicated” just because the time when this term will exist in our vernacular will likely last only weeks.
