  • Does "undefenestrated" mean tossing someone back through the window s/he was recently tossed out of? Do tell, but don't ask a bryozoan of the fenestrated ilk - it won't answer.

  • I would think that undefenestrated means "not yet defenestrated", in contrast to undefenestrable, which refers to things that cannot be defenestrated, generally because they are too large to fit though the available windows, or because they would not plummet satisfactorily. For example, a pigeon cannot be defenestrated (unless it is dead), as it can just fly back in through the window, thereby refenestrating itself.

  • How frustrenestrating.

  • Mollusque -- what about those things which are just barely too large too fit through the available windows? Might they be quasifenestrated, and if so, would Crisco help?

  • Sometimes I think it would just be easier to use the door. My stepson climbs out his ground floor bedroom window to disappear like a ghost, then seeps, apparition-like, back through the window in the middle of the night hours or days later to find his bed again. The small part of his routine I can discern is a cycle of self-defenestration, refenestration, feeding/flossing, ablution, hibernating, instant messaging, feeding/flossing, and defenestration punctuated by frequent sessions of plasma "donation" when his cash-on-hand ebbs. At least the boy flosses!

  • Pterodactyl, something might be quasifenestrable, in which case a prefenestration treatment such as Crisco would be needed to ensure the success of an attempted defenestration. But something cannot be quasifenestrated; either the defenestration attempt succeeds, and the object is defenestrated, or it fails, and the object remains undefenestrated.
