The correct definition is A

(Mind you. I probably should have chosen C)

Perhaps our underworld Hogmistress should disqualify both "K's", because ambiguity is too much like the stuff of life. smile

Gee Golly Wow, all the definitions seem plausible (except one).
But if you say J real fast three times it sounds logical.
My guess is J J J smile

C looks good, D looks good, K looks good, M looks good.

One thing puzzles me: the word was posted with the hint4 that it was encountered on a TV program. What kind of TV program could have included this word, if [number] is the correct definition?

I like M for most convincing, but I have to vote for D as most likely right.

at first blush, many of these seem plausible. but then, at second blush, most fail the dictionary test; I've narrowed it down to four, CJKorM... if forced to choose, I'd probly pick J.

From TV, could this mean it isn't in any dictionary at all?

And let's get it over with. I like H.

I may vote for something different tomorrow after having calmed down from a birthday party's worth of wine drinking (hubby's birthday, not mine) but today, C it is.

A sounds good but I wouldn't think it would be spelled that way with the second G hard. L would be good if it weren't said to be a verb but then given a noun definition. M sounds like the kind of definition I would have come up with, but didn't this time around. So I think I'll go with M

I was actually referring to the "double comparative"
like " more better", don't worry about it. Sweeter
is itself the comparative of sweet, doesn't need the
"more". Just the teacher in me, always correcting
grammar, even when it does not need correcting. Thanks
for not taking offense.

Actually I would postulate it was an editing-incompletely error more than a typo. That it started out something like "...it's more fun knowing which one it is..." and got edited from " more fun" to "sweeter" except that "more" didn't get erased. And then sweeter had the lapsus digitae and came out sweater.

(There, now doesn't that sound authoritative? And I wasn't even the author!)

But we know what you meant, anyway. In this case, at least, I'm a descriptivist.

Candy must still be waiting on someone.. but it's been two(2) weeks since this was posted - typically after one week, a warning is given that time has expired and then soon thereafter.. too bad!

courtesy should be shown to those who have guessed as well as to those who just haven't gotten around tuit. (or you could LIU, like I did..)

It's not in the OED (at least, not in the brick and mortar OED) so it isn't really a word.

I think Candy is in jail.

And wrongo Faldage, the Hogwash word is a word. I found it in a book. It is spelled differently and pronounced differently and the meaning is not quite the same but it is still the Hogwash word.

Wanna bet? cool

Give the gal a break, guys! She is poorly sick at present. Not sure what, exactly: last I heard, (a week ago) she had a cold, but that is often the start of something else.

I was being snarky, jj. I know there's perfectly cromulent words that aren't in the dictionary. For example, try looking up "gullible".

Get well soon, Candy. You are the sweet key note of an otherwise discordant band of Hogwashers. smile

And as for you, Faldage.
I knew you were being snarky [whatever "snarky" means] and I will look up "gullible" right after I check my Funk and Wagnalls for "cromulent" to see if there's any such word. smirk
