It is my hope that Cellar-Door eventually acquires Bluspel and Flalansfere status, which is why I’m rather insistent that proper elision occurs, and not hasty loppings-off and splicings-on of various vowels and consonants.

As a concession, though, and so that the image of Tandoori chicken is not overly regnant in the mind, the adjectival form of Cellar-Door will drop the ‘o’; I give you…

Cellardorian.

You need to read Lewis’s essay. In fact…it’s canonical.
