  • Yeah, andrew.simone's right. It means "all messed up." As in, "Well, your grandpa tried to put the knob back on the cupboard, but instead he broke the hinge and now it's all cattywampus."

  • The ant. This word should be anglicized. It would make an especially good adjective, "hormigan," or "ant-like, small, miniature."

  • "You have an edulcorating presence, my dear." Does that work? As in, "You leach the acids right out of the room, my dear."

  • Hi John, is there any feature that allows a user to see when people have commented on words that are in their dictionary? Something like the Recent Comments list in the sidebar on the Main Page, but somewhere in your profile, only for words in your lists.

  • Past participle of the verb "fork," I imagine, meaning, "to be assaulted with a tined utensil." As in, "She forked you pretty good, man."

  • What does it mean, though, to be "light in the loafers"?

  • Crunchy, chewy, cheesy. I'm thinkin' "cruncheweesy."
