hill7 commented on the word kelter
I read once in a book I can't remember, that someone was "keltered into the sea." Has anyone run into this?

hill7 commented on the word hypos
This word is used in "Moby Dick:"
. . .whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet: and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street. . .
