reesetee commented on the word spectabundal
Sorry all--didn't see your comments until now. Yes, according to OED Online, it's meant to be an adjective. Here's the sole example:"1652 T. Urquhart Εκσκυβαλαυρον 111 By the inchanted transportation of the eyes and eares of its spectabundal auditorie."

I see, so, something like "Is not the mounted liger, who, froze eterne in spectabundal spring..." OK, that makes more sense.

Or "The twelfth chime of the clock saw the spectabundal acolytes seated tensely around the pentagram, in the guttering light of the candelabra."
It can't be a verb. I imagine something like: "The cat waited, spectabundal, for the goldfish to swim within reach of its paw".
How do you suppose this is used? "I spectabundal you"? "I am spectabundaling you"? "I am spectabundaled (spectabundalled?) for you"? "I am spectabundalled to you"? "He was spectabundalled for her"?... it just sounds ... silly.
Rubabness, the definition is right below your own comment.
