OP here's one (maybe):
[perhaps fr. frobnitz, a thingname] abbrev. as frob
slang to manipulate or adjust; to tweak the controls
What does a slubberdegullion frobnicate?
(We could build this sentence up as in a game maybe using hogwash words.)
I have vague recollection of the word slubberdegullion in a childrens story I used to love, Avy.
I have looked for it on internet, but not remembering the title, its been a difficult search.
From memory, the story was about a girl who had gold (maybe) coins, spilling from her mouth when ever she opened it and (maybe her sister) who wasn't so nice...when she opened her mouth, foul word spilled forth....like slubberdegullion etc. I wish I could find it again!
I am sorry to have mentioned it if is a foul word. It just sounds nice.
Oh no...its not a foul word.
Sorry I said that.
I think its a great word, rolls so well off the tongue.
OP yes, not a foul word at all; but a very useful word, withal.
I'm thinking more along the lines of..
obs. rare a false correction
OP or abashance
obs. rare abashment, dismay
OP here's one that's full of awfulness
obs. rare abhorrence
OP here's one which actually has great potential!
to rob of beauty, disfigure (as opposed to embellish)
The slubberdegullion is a frog of a pale non identifiable color. Not foul, but not fair either.Originally Posted By: AvyI am sorry to have mentioned it if is a foul word. It just sounds nice.
paradiorthosis: obs. rare a false correction
This must be about dental corrections, when something goes terribly wrong.
