The big-nosed teacher smiles creepily and rapidly moves his hand in a satirical representation of the American school system.[1]

Prisencolinensinainciusol (Pronounced something like /ˌpɹi.zɛŋˌkʰo:ʊ.lɪˌnɛ:n.sɪ.naɪ̭n.ˈtʃu:ˌzoʊl/) is a song and attempted neologism created by Italian songwriter Adriano Celentano. The song's 'lyrics' were pure gibberish, designed to imitate English.[2] The song itself was written to show how incommunicability is affecting modern society.

In English, it sounds like 'freezing golden ends and nine shoes all.'


Celentano claims that 'prisencolinensinainciusol' means universal love. However, it is difficult to semantically analyze the word because no morphemes are given. It could be assumed that the entire word is a singular morpheme, although given its nine-syllable length, it is more likely that the word is a combination of morphemes meaning 'universal' and 'love.'
