Namaske (namaste + mask)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic required many people to wear face masks. A new portmanteau word was “namaske” (namaste + mask).

“The mask i wear to protect you recognizes the mask you wear to protect me. NAMASKE” was posted on Twitter by Mr. 𝕄𝕪𝕤𝕥𝕖𝕣𝕚𝕠𝕤𝕠𝕡𝕙𝕪 on April 3, 2020. “The mask I wear to protect you, recognizes the mask you wear to protect me. 😷 NAMASKE 😷” was posted on Facebook by Jazz Sayin on April 7, 2020.


Wikipedia: Namaste
Namaste (/ˈnɑːməsteɪ/, Devanagari: नमस्ते, Hindi pronunciation: [nəməsteː]), sometimes spoken as Namaskar and Namaskaram, is a customary Hindu greeting. In the contemporary era, it is found on the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia and among the Indian diaspora worldwide. The gesture (but not the term namaste for it) is widely used in the parts of Southeast Asia where Indian religions are strong. It is used both for greeting and leave-taking. Namaste is usually spoken with a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest.

Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
