- n. The hole from which a whale spouts.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Every now and then the waters found their way down into some shaft or spouthole.
So the infuriated mammal is baffled and dodged, while thrust after thrust of the long lances are got home, and streamlets of blood trickling over the edges of his spouthole give warning that the end is near.
