sionnach commented on the word hump-glutteral
Not to be confused with dump-gutteral, the term used to describe the flesh of a beast found on the side of the road.
Or stump-guttural, the term used by linguists to describe the odd fricative-plosive snort made by (certain) Wordniks in response to Doctor Jamieson's more bizarre flights of fancy.
bilby commented on the word hump-glutteral
Next he'll be describing the dinner bell that calls the hubbie to feast on a sheep that died a natural death (as noted by the feisty chief-of-station on CSI: Bannockburn).
What a hump-dinger that will be.
