What is a Ponyism?

Long story short, the term "Ponyism" is a word I coined for the page List of common phrases to mean a word or phrase used by Ponies that would normally be considered unconventional in everyday speech. It’s like “Bushism”, but for ponies. And in a good way.

Why create this page?

I’m relatively new to the fandom. I still don’t fully consider myself a Brony, although I’m sure many would argue. I started playing in a MUCK called Ponyverse a couple months ago and I came to the realization that, if I was going to be playing a canon character (Discord) I should probably become familiar with how ponies speak. I searched for something here but was disappointed. So I sought out to start compiling a list for myself, and others to refer to.

Your thoughts?

Seeing as how I’m new to the scene and no one knows me yet, I don’t expect any responses, but I figured I’d throw the question out there anyway. What do you think of the term Ponyism? Do you have a better idea? I’d be happy to hear them!
