  • Always loved this word--but I've only seen it spelled "Cholmondeley" (with an extra "e"). Are there several spellings?

  • reesetee, I think you are right, but I'm not sure how to correct this in a simple way. There are, of course, limericks:

    There was a young fellow, named Cholmondeley

    Who always, at dinner, sat dolmondeley.

    His fair partner said,

    As he crumbled his bread,

    'Dear me! You behave very rolmondeley!'

    I have a weakness for this kind of limerick.

  • Excellent! Keep 'em coming! :-)

  • I was going to ask about that extra E as well. Cool list!

  • I think you can delete this word or else add a new one in with the proper spelling. The comments will go away (actually--maybe not) but you could always type your excellent limerick in again!
