  • DARE defines gillflirted as "having the vulva injured, usually in giving birth".

  • . . . in our age bred up into infants searching for a womb to crawl into, not be made to walk loth the gingerly dust of death, but to find a moist, gillflirted way.
    —Djuna Barnes, Nightwood

    I had no idea what this meant; 'gill-flirt' is in the OED with a transparent meaning "wanton girl". Okay. *reviews sentence* Okay, I still have no idea what it means, Djuna.

    Also two grammatical oddities; 'loth' as an adverb (normally it's only an adjective in the predicative complement 'be loth to VP'), and 'gingerly' as an adjective.
