  • I would love it if 'obtesty' was a legitimate word.

  • Our lordly style
    You shall not quench
    With base canaille!
    (That word is French.)
    Distinction ebbs
    Before a herd
    Of vulgar plebs!
    (A Latin word.)
    ’Twould fill with joy,
    And madness stark
    The oί πoλλoί!
    (A Greek remark.)
    One Latin word, one Greek remark,
    And one that’s French.

    - Iolanthe, Gilbert & Sullivan
