someone actually wrote to me today asking how many words could be found via OneLook which are "sole-sourced" at wwftd. wow. I have no way of knowing this, and know of no easy way to find out, and know that it makes no conceivable difference to anyone else (nor me), but it is fun to consider. (I could probly come up with a dozen pretty quickly.)

Googling tsuwm is quite convincing.
Googling boardnames is fun anyhow. Everyone is there.
I share mine with the lovey basketball player Branshea Brown. I was surprised such a good player (someone at all) has Branshea as a real name.

over the last ten days, I've spotted forty-three (43) of these by checking random OneLook referrals; but they'll all be on wiktionary by-and-by.
