Enblogment

Another post on a neologism, this time two days old: enblogment (coined by Larry Lessig). Basically a bloggable (that's another neologism for sure, but an inevitable one once "blog" became a verb - -able is such a nice, hardworking, productive suffix) method of endorsement of a candidate. Hmm, I wonder when nasal place assimilation will occur and make this emblogment instead?

BTW, someone already pointed this out in the comments to Lessig's blog. Late off the blocks as usual.

I seem to remember that there're some other English words that have a nasal place assimilation clash but I can't seem to find any common ones.
