  • 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
