  • (noun) - (1) Conbobberation, helliferocious, mollagausauger, to puckerstopple, and peedoddles were actually in use, and seem unbelievably outlandish today only because of their unfamiliarity . . . The "tall talk" of the backwoods, moving ever westward with the frontier, left unmistakable traces in the writings of Mark Twain, John Hay, Bret Hart, and a good many smaller fry.

    --Thomas Pyles' Words and Ways of American English, (1952)

    (2) Conbobberation, a disturbance.

    --My Forgotten English calendar doesn't give a source for this. O_o

    (3) Sockdologer, said to be a corruption of doxology, and to have thence derived the meaning of a final argument or a conclusive evidence which closes a debate as decisively as the singing of a doxology ends religious service.

    --M. Schele de Vere's Americanisms, 1872
