Wordsmith.org Forums (Old) Weekly themes. (have been consolidated into a single forum above) Words from classical mythology Words from Greek or Roman myths
the word that some idiot used a Germanic root for, when he could, I'm sure, have made a nice coinage from the classical root.
You want someone should make up a word from a classical root just because the story came from a classical source? When we have a perfectly good word in English? Clue, BTW, traces back to the same IE root, gel- that spawned the Latin glomer-.
OK. but be careful what you ask for:
Ariadne gave Theseus a glom that he might find his way out the maze after the Minotaur made mincemeat out of him. Theseus glommed on to it with the knowledge that he wan't gone be mincemeat and that he would make Ariadne pay for her evil ways.
There, I hope you're healthy.
