Salutations! I confess, I stole teuchter off a Scottish history buff I know (not on wordie). But may I say that I was really excited to see pizzicato on your list of fun words? It's been entirely too long since I used that word...

question--has wordie always been spelled "wirdee" at the top of www.wordie.org?

postnomer commented on the word squirk
in the OED, squirk isn't an insult like it is in the UD... instead, it's "a. A half-suppressed laugh. b. A sharp squeaking sound."

having more words than I do is all very well--but I actually got to use defenestrate in that essay I turned in today. Yes, Becky defenestrates her copy of the dictionary at the beginning of Vanity Fair. I enjoyed that entirely too much.
