Like "sanction."

I get it for "simon-pure" and "excrescence," and almost for chuff.

Simon-pure can convey genuineness or hypcrasy.
Excrescence can convey normal or abnormal outgrowth.
Chuff can be anus or vagina - back OR front, perhaps?

Thanks for the run-down on chuff, Bill. For some reason I didn't get chuff in my email. (Or maybe I deleted it by accident - but I musta deleted several of them.) It seems like it might be used in the way that one uses "piece of ass" to mean more than just a woman's posterior. It sounds vulgar, but the blurb says it's a euphemism. (I suppose euphemisms can be vulgar, but less vulgar than the words they are euphemizing.)

All these are new to me, but I'm very fond of this word "escrescence." It reminds me of what I once said to someone having "excreted pearls of distilled stupidity" onto the net. I'm going to practice this one and make it part of my normal vocabulary.
