<i>dentical</i> in a servant's mouth would be an alteration or malapropism for something else. Though Jane Austen was never so cruel, Dickens was, constantly, so Georgette Heyer would be putting slang in their mouths that way.

They are fun!... they let your brains rest while you have a pleasant read ! and you learn a lot of words to drop into conversation and baffle your friends with!

I like the word nuncheon - an early lunch?
