Blended words are common in writing. They are words formed by combining parts of two different words. The most common example occurs when the beginning part of a word is combined with the end part of another word. For example, the words sweep and wipe can be combined this way to form SWIPE. Smoke and fog also become SMOG. However, other word combinations do not always require this pattern since the word Interpol is formed not by combining the beginning and ending parts but by both the beginning and initial syllables of their original words which are international and police.
