No, but I might could of picked it out of a list of daffynitions. I'll go look it up now.

I'll parboly not remember it and would most likely use a periphrase next time the concept comes up

No, I'd never heard it before but I know the word aliquota in Portuguese. I'll now read up to see whether it and the English word are real cognates or false friends.

...so far make it seven yes, one maybe yes, and four no.

Does that conform to or refute expectations?

Gee whiz, Wofadoc, did you help count the votes down in Florida?

I count (6) "yes" votes, and (6) "no" votes (including my "no" vote that I haven't yet voted) along with (1) vote that was thrown out for being indefinate.

The polls will remain open until a tie-breaking vote is cast.
Then we will see if Bill Buckley is more word-worthy than the voting majority here on Awad.

Tic tic tic...

Since I no longer am expected to have any knowledge, in the future you can just assume "no" until I *care otherwise.

Alright, well I've seen it a bunch, and I think I did once bother to look it up. But it would seem did not bother to remember it, and I was content to believe it was something I'd once seen written in association with the weight of a can of over-cooked peas; on a not entirely unrelated note, I wonder if Mr. Buckley is thumb-indexed.
