  • Thanks Doc, that's much better.

  • Yarb, I prescribe adding urbaniores to Panvocalic polyglot.

  • Yeah. I've been there myself with lare et penate...

  • Yes, Latinly speaking, but my 'plain English' feeling was just to truncate the s. Upon reflection, as it is not a word in current use, I should have just listed it as urbaniores and done the right thing by Pliny :-)

    See Dr Mollusque about that itch.

  • Thanks - but wouldn't the singular be urbanior?

    I've got this panvocalic itch in my pants.

  • "So much for the more civilized apple-trees (urbaniores, as Pliny calls them). I love better to go through the old orchards of ungrafted apple-trees, at whatever season of the year,--so irregularly planted: sometimes two trees standing close together; and the rows so devious that you would think that they not only had grown while the owner was sleeping, but had been set out by him in a somnambulic state."
    - Henry David Thoreau, Wild Apples: The History of the Apple Tree.
