A word a day

Started by: erontquay (inactive)

I have decided to learn a new word every day, and todays word that I would like to share with everyone is "Cockalorum". It means A boastful or self important person. A strutting little fellow. Now I shall have to wait for the opportunity to use it

Similar to a popinjay?

I'd have guessed it was Wiganese for a novelty alarm clock from Ann Summers.

Incidentally, "I know knowledge" is a line by the intelectually challenged Bunny Warren. A character in Porridge.

I always have to check the spelling of that. Especially after hearing Baldrick mangle it.

Noun 1. mumpsimus - a traditional notion that is obstinately held although it is unreasonable; "he still holds to the old mumpsimus that a woman's place is in the kitchen"

This task is much more difficult the other way round.

For example, there is a word meaning:

Damned if I can remember it though. Could probably find it by Googling, but no-doubt someone will know it and post the answer.

I heard the term the other day.

I didn't realise it could be applied (term, not putty) to a body part.

That's a keeper.

Intumescent putty is used to make a fire-break in cable ducts. There was a nasty fire the other year in a service duct in Manchester. Though I think the putty is used in pipes that cables pass through, rather than larger ducts.

Euphemism

Replied: 4th Mar 2012 at 21:56

Alow me

A euphemism is the substitution of a mild, inoffensive, relatively uncontroversial phrase, for a frank expression that might offend or otherwise suggest something unpleasant to the audience.

Some euphemisms are intended to amuse, while others are created to mislead or at least put a positive spin on events. Euphemisms can also be used in the place of words considered profane.

i asked you plenty of times "are you that big lad what left" but you never said yes,not that it matters, i mean im not going to lose any sleep over it

you said "click my name, (again), look at my pic" i looked and the only proper picture,not blocked out, was of someone wearing glasses

Find the thread, monkey.
Or stop bleating....
I DID go into Coral bookies looking for you, I also went in the Norley and asked Miss Cu******** if she knew you, I asked the former Landlord who was in at the time, (Mr B) if he knew you, they both said no.

I don't know where he is. I shall await your proof I claimed I know you. I never denied that I went in the bookies looking for you, I asked the girls working there if they knew the name, same in the Norley.

I often read but very rarely do I comment on these boards unless I feel I can add some comments of value. However I cannot let some of your latest accusations against Gwim go without responding. (I am Gwim's better half btw)

You have made some very strong comments recently about Gwim and soldiers so let me put the record straight. Some 15 months ago my nephew was killed in action in Afghanistan.
Now as well as grieving the loss of a family member of which he has known since a boy, Gwim also has shown his respect time and time over by attending other fallen soldiers repatriations and funeral ceremonies. Now I don't tell you this to defend Gwim (as we all know he is very big and capable!) but he would never divulge such details out of respect for me, my nephew and the soldiers ceremonies he has attended. For you to suggest that he would insult any of our troops is highly offensive to me and other bereaved families.

If you must carry on with your childish games - which are at times admittedly amusing to read can I suggest that you stick with attempting to insult Gwim and not use sensitive topics that can cause distress and offence to others. There are boundaries which should never be crossed and our troops be either serving, KIA or retired are one of those boundaries. To use them as you have done to try and score petty points is despicable and tells people far more about what type of person you are than him.

There are a few repeats of Morecambe and Wise Christmas shows doing the rounds at the moment.

there's a belting running joke in the 1975 one where Ernie Wise takes the role of Saumuel Pepys, writing a play.

He's repeatedly shown with quill in hand scribbling away and voicing his thoughts.

Every now and then he mentions a word, then sayes "I like that, that's a good word, I'll use that".

But

He never can spell the words, so substitutes them for easier ones to write.

Nowt to do with owt, really. But it reminds me of the 'new word' threads.

Ar you satisfied now, Mac?

Or need I go further back?

Well, let's see. First the earth cooled. And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes. And Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothes. I couldn't believe it.
