August 12, 2006
My mother has an Oxford Universal Dictionary from 1959 and there are a couple of entries that are somewhat relevent…
Chilver – a rhyme for "Silver"
Curple – a rhyme for "Purple"
Hirple – another rhyme for "Purple"
A few words that aren't relevent to previous entries, but just amuse me…
Batrachian – toad–like
A wonderful word that sounds very majestic, but which actually means "toad–like".
Crapulent et. al
Some wonderful words for hangovers etc.
