plang is a melancholy term that is always written in lowercase and usually involves elipses. Its origin stems from a commenter on TheStreet.com who tends to hold a negative view of the world, but rarely expresses it in an enthusiastic manner. It can be used as a noun, interjection, verb, adjective, or adverb, depending on the context and added letters. (Also acceptable: plangy, planged, planging, planger)
