suppository The oft forgotten
September 30, at 9: YOU write the story on this!!! I like the play on words though. Reuters reports a new supposiTORY aimed at inflicting beliefs on others has been given the seal of approval from Health Canada. When I try to do it, this comes up: As the Libs front runner, Iggy will likely get in. Just the opposite side of the same counterfeit coin. I like Ken Dryden. Being PM is analogous to goaltending? Ignatieff, Rae, Dion — not sure Kennedy is ready yet, but he has lots of potential — needs to work on his French for one thing willing to take on this thankless post of PM.
They are all top calibre, in my opinion, and a cabinet with them in it and Dryden, Hall-Findlay, and others would be a real opportunity for positive change. Someone has to do the job. PIT, To match, to contest, a term probably borrowed from the cock'pit. Be it for argument admitted That both the combatants were pitied. It is performed thus: If he is disposed to give any thing, he drops his contribution into the pitcher, and they retire without further molestation.
He is thus made a frec'-man, and can quietly pay his visits ip future, without being subject to any similar exaction. But, if after repeated demands, the lover refuse to pay his contribution, he is either saluted with the contents pf the pitcher, or a general row ensues, in wliich the water is spilled and the pitcher is broken.
If any young neighbours should get an inkling of this visit, they will, for the sake of a little mirth, and to annoy the enamoured swain, frequently join in this ceremony. PLASH, To splash, to throw water about, to make a noise in water by agitating it or throwing something heavy into it. It may here be observed that for plash, in its proper sense of cutting and interweaving the branches of trees or shrubs in a hedge, we say splash, and vice versa.
It does not signify, according to Johnson, a smooth or plain piece of ground, but simply a place, as " I steud at that time i this vara plat. In the following example it is a reflected verb. PLET, Work perfwmed by platting. I have never heard the substantive used. Pockr pock-marked, J brocken and pock-freited are used in the same sense.
Fretten, rubbed or marked, Mr. POD, A foot, generally applied to a child. POD, To walk with an unsteady gate like a child or old man. It also frequently means to walk quick, to make haste, still with a reference to the original cause of exertion. Johnson uses the word in this sense. To stir the fire. A small covering for a wounded finger. To pry, to intermeddle. Johnson, is to be contentious about what is of no value. In Craven it signifies to deprive a person of his assumed pretensions, or to pluck from the daw his borrowed plumes ; or, to call one to an account for something offensive which he has said or done; to settle some trifling dispute or quarrel.
Brandos Fop, Antig, 2d vol, p. POOT, A young growse or moor poot. This seems to be the old English orthography. Jamieson, whose explanation seems to contradict the quotation adduced. The derivation given by Skinner is more probable, viz.
The quotation from Skene, given by Dr. In Cole's Diet, posnet is called a great kettle. Not so understood by Dr. Johnson, but explained by Steevens similar to the Craven word insense, which see. POST, An almost perpendicular column of rock. It is sometimes called a horse or a rider, when a perpen- dicular block intercepts the horizontal beds or strata ; it rhymes with cost. POST, " Post and pan," a building made of wood and plaster in alternate divisions. To do things ineffectually. POUR, " It rains and pours down," a redundant expres- sion for raining very fut.
POW, A head, poU. A pole ; a Bcythe porv, the long handle of a scythe. POWL, To cut hair. Both the verb and the substantive are thus elongated. To be forward or pert. Dr, Whitaker, the learned Editor of P.
Plou,, makes no comment on this word. To spring up, to germinate. To this word up is generally added. PRICKER, A needle introduced into the hole previously bored in a rock, for the purpose of making a vacancy, to communicate fire to the powder, for a blast.
Johnson says, is obsolete. Ray defines it a pert, forward fellow. Minshew, a ripe-headed young boy, from the Lat. Skinner gives a different explanation of this word. An iron pin fixed in pattens. A short stake driven in the ground. PROP, To prompt, to assist, to direct or show how to act.
PROU, A kind of interjection made use of in driving cattle, for the double purpose of turning them, and of pushing them forward, when they would loiter. But I do not know of any combination of letters that will give the exact sound, as it is spoken by drovers. Howell, the Editor of Cotgrave, says this is the Welsh word pru, and adduces it amongst others, as a proof '' that the ancient and true genuine language of the Gauls," was a dialect of the British.
Too high or full, as " that joint's to proud" that is, it is too full and prominent. Soyez attentifs ci vos pies et vos cues ; in other words, mind your ps and qs.
A fright, a state of perplexity or trouble. Johnson, and derived from pugnus. In Scottish, according to Dr. Jamieson, it means to jog with the elbow. He stands and plies the crowd with warfere sore.
Since I wrote the above, I have read Mr, Todd's second edition of Johnson, to which he has added this explanation of the substantive purchase ; mechanical advantage in raising a weight. In farm-houses it is usual to expose the pewter as ornamental furni- ture, which was. PUSS, A contemptuous term for a woman. Minshew derives it from the Belg. Une grosse dondon, a burly wench, a woman, a great Jat puss. Vide also Tripiere, and puss in the English part. It likewise signifies to impose upon, as ; " I'll nut be put on by ony body.
Keen, piercing, very cold. Some derive it from the Lat. Others derive it from the Pr. A quire of paper. Todd derives it from Goth, quark, the throat. Though these mills are not now in use, I frequently observe them near the cottages of this neighbourhood. Of the shape of this mill and of the mode of working it, a description is given by Dr. Johnson in his Tour to the Hebrides, p. In the middle of the upper stone is a round hole, and on one nde is a long handle.
The grinder sheds the com gradually into the hole with one hand, and works the handle round with the other. The com slides down the convexity of the lower stone and by the motion of the upper is ground in its passage. It is more frequently used in an interrogatory sense; as come, double or quits? See raw, RA, Raw.
A school boy rabbles over his lesson. To do a piece of work slightly or superficially. It is often applied to a girl, who, in sewing, takes too long stitches, and does not finish her work neatly.
Johnson has the substantive, but makes no meii- tion of this verb. Todd has since admitted it. Johnson deemed it obsolete. Ratalee, a rablement, a fond saw or saying. En dire sa rataUe, to speak his mind, to blurt out his sentence. RACK, The clouds driven along by the wind.
Hinc ein ruchlosen man dicunt Germani, in diem qui vivit. The same as rabbling. Qu, from ravel and coppin, which see. RAG, A drizzling rain, mist, reck, rack in the sky, all originally from the A. The catkins of the hazle, called hazel-rag. A stone used to sharpen edge-tools, and for other purposes. A stray or privilege for cattle to depasture.
RAKE, To stray as cattle in search of food generally on a common. To heap coals upon it in the evening, in order to keep it burning during the night. Todd have this word, but derive it from Sax. Jamieson justly observes, that. Butter is frequently said to be rammish in consequence of the cows, in spring, feeding 6n rams, which give it that flavour. In Scotland the milk is said to tamp, when from some disease in the cow it becomes ropy ; Dr.
The disease here alluded to is what we call the felon, and is perfectly distinct from rammish, which is nothing but the flavour of rams or wild garlick. Silva Ccedua in Coles' Diet, is called runnel. RAMP, An ascent or sweep in the coping of a wall. RAMP, " To ramp and reave," to get by any means, fair or foul.
In Skinner it is " rap and rend," which he derives from the Lat. Here It may be observed that our term reave, seems nearer to the Sax. Bailey has it to repe and renne, to rap and rend, to procure by any means; and Ainsworth, to get all one can rap and run for, quo jure quaque injuria occupare.
Johnson to rap and rend, or more properly rap and ran, from Sax. In the second part of Henry IV. I, it is rampallian, of the same signification, from ram, fetid, and Lat.
Jamieson makes this quotation from Wintown, he gives no explanation of the word ratvndown, which is evidently the Craven random. The writer on Grammar in the Encyclopcedia MetropoL quotes from Menage on the word randan, " s' enfuir a grand randon, V origine de ce mot ne m' est pas connue. Todd explains rank, by strongly, violently, fiercely. Jamieson, is some sort of a plant. A disorderly, boasting person.
Emboutir, to retch, extend, stretch. To tell great lies. RATE, To expose timber to the weather in order to extract the sap and to dry it. To injure cattle by exposure to rain and storms. A TY, Cold, tempestuous. RAUM, To reach, to stretch out the arms. RAUN, Roe or eggs of fishes.
RAY, To defile, or pollute with dung. Minshew, under rate, refers to berate, which, he says, is to arraie with filthinesse. A common effect of fear. To comb the hair. Goth, reda, expUcare, '' It's seea cotter'd at I cannot read it ;" i, e, the hair is so entangled, that it cannot be combed. RE AN, The rein of a bridle. REAP, To rip up, to enumerate a person's failings, and upbraid him with them, or to disclose them to others ; to cast any thing offensive in his teeth.
REAR, To lay timber on a new building. This is probably the reason that has apparently led Mr. His translation, however, warrants us in supposing that the term can have no reference to bacon, but rather to a horse; and Minshew has understood it in the same sense, when he says, proprie dicitur de equis quos in medio cursu deficientes nulla vi loco movere poteris. Reasty, when bacon is yellow and tastes rank. From all which it appears, that neither the orthography nor the meaning of the word was decisively fixed, but that it was used some- times in the one sense and sometimes in another.
What is the usage at present in other districts, or in this formerly, I am not prepared to say ; but at present we never, as far as my observation extends, use reasty in tKe sense of rancid, but always reezed ; or, as it is sometimes heard, reez-dy.
Tim Bobbin has recast or reest, the outside of bacon. Tusser uses the word in the sense of rancid. A starveling, wrecks ling, writling, Cotgrave, from wreck, Belg. REE, To put corn through a sieve. A corruption of rear-supper. RIB, The bar of a fire grate. Idle, confused talk, ribaldry. RID, A hollow place in the gravel, where salmon deposit their roe ; from redde, spawn.

RIP, A dissolute person ; or any thing base. RIPE, Prevalent, abounding; an evident corruption of rife. RISE, Twigs, underwood, called also hedge rise. WarUm Hist, of E. The stalk was as rishe right. RIT, The route or rut of a wheel.
RIVE, A rent, or tear. ROAK, A gentle rain. Not in common iise. ROO, A row or disturbance. ROOD, Seven yards in length. Of the same signification as roytish in Todd's edition of Johnson, of which, he says, he knows not the origin.
The Craven word roy, Pk. Ray has rotvty, over rank and strong; spoken of corn or grass. ROOL, To ruffle, to rumple clothes, by throwing them negligently about. ROPS, Guts ; also, cords or strings made of guts. ROT, An imprecatory term, as roi it, rot thee, and many other such blasphemous phrases. Full of grass, abounding in food for cattle. Perhaps it has some relation to Ray's Southern word, roughings, latter grass, after-math. A simile evidently borrowed from the coarsest linen or doth. To tumble, to be restless, in this sense it is now obsolete.
In the place of. Pars clunium bubulorum camosa. ROY, To bluster, to domineer. Thompson in his Etymons says, that the word aroynt signifies reprobation, from Goth.
When thus guarded, no witch, however presumptuous, had the audacity to enter. Sometimes a small piece of it was suspended from the button hole, which had no less efficacy in defending the traveller. May not the sailor's wife in Macbeth have confided in the divine aid of this tree, when she triumphantly exclaimed, "aroynt thee," alias a royn-tfee! You and your cattle had all been drawn in. In the song of the Laidley worm in Northumberland Garland, p.

RUN, To suppose, to conjecture. A person of a strong though low stature. On the eve of the Saint, to whom the church was dedicated, it was usual for the parishioners to carry a quantity of rushes, with which to strew the floors, of the churches or chapels, which formerly were nothing but common earth.
Garlands of flowers were also carried at the same time and hung up, till the next yearly festival. This ancient custom is now become nearly obsolete.
With cooler oaken boughs, Come in for comely ornaments. To re-adorn the house. RYPE, To break up rough and uncultivated ground. Thoroughly to investigate, " I nivver heeard scripture seea weel ryped up afore. Wwlif, It is also frequently used in the sense of sure or certain, as, " he's saaf to be hanged.

SAG, To bend or depress. Welsh, aswasgu, per Metathesin, swag. Johnson has this word though he gives no etymology. SAGE, A saw, the g sounded hard. Norman Verses on the Athanasian Creed.

Johnson has this word, which he derives from Ascalon, but he does not explain the form or nature of the onion. None are so denominated except those with thick necks, which are generally selected for present use. Though this word is much used in modern times, and there are too many characters to whom it is now applicable, it is not found in Johnson's Dictionary.
Bums, in his Tfva Dogs, calls it scandal potion. The adverb scant is used by Dr. A bean, shell and all, is put into one of the pea-pods ; whoever gets this bean is to be first married.

SCRY, To descry, to detect. SCUGtG, a sheltered place. To be afflicted with a diarrhoea. SEAL, To bind or fasten cattle in their stalls.

Johnson, though he uses shailm a different sense, and which does not seem to agree with the quotation from L'Estrange. Shale has no other meaning here than to loiter or to drag the feet heavily on the ground.

The Scotch phrase is a little varied. With the help of such simple works, neither the great critic Dr. With the habits and nature of this insect Skakspeare seems to have been better acquainted than his ingenious annotators.

Gold was seldom mentioned as a current medium. Every Man out of his Humowr. James' mass, and I have not seen him since. As with some of the other examples cited in this article, I'd humbly suggest that pronouncing the "r" in February is more than merely an acceptable variant..
Let's promote literacy in our speech by keeping the "r" in February!! Like Linda, I've puzzled over "often" for years, though I've come to the opposite conclusion. While I grew up assuming that the "t" was silent because that's how everyone around me pronounced it, as I grew older and became aware that the root of the word is "oft" as in "frequent" , I began to subtly acknowledge the "t" in speech.
A similar puzzle is "Christmas," which of course is a conglomeration of "Christ" and "mass. Much less obviously than with "often," it's quite easy to give that "t" just the barest nod to acknowledge its existence without actually sounding weird, but it is that really necessary or even correct? I have just come back from a British cruise in Chile with lecturers, professors who seem to pay no respect to foreign pronunciations.
So there too, they seem to say! It's very nice to see someone mention so many common pronunciation errors. I would add, however, that in addition to some regional pronunciation of the word "ten" as "tin", so many especially female broadcasters say it just as incorrectly as "tan".
The latter is a good example of what is called a "hyper-urbanism", which is such an overshoot of an attempt to be correct, that it tumbles into another incorrect form. As for "preferred" pronunciations, dictionaries don't distinguish; the first pronunciation listed is not the preferred one, it is simply one of the correct ones.
All listed variations are equally acceptable. What about the little things? Like "ar" for "are" or "our" - "fer" for "four" - "'im","'er" and "'em" for "him", "her" and "them" - "ta" or "t'" for "to" - "ast" for "asked" - "problee" for "probably" - "goverment" for "government" - and as a nod to Greame and our Canadian friends "aboot" for "about" - and on and on and on.
Some of them, of course, are regionalisms. And, on occasion, I have been asked to "make it a little sloppy" by some casting people when they want me to sound more like a "real" person - like slurring some things like "first sentence" into "firss-sen'enz" or not articulating "important" so much into "impor'n't" with glottals.
One lesson learned is to ask, especially the casting person. And especially if there's a word most particularly the product or service you have a question about.
Don't be intimidated by the situation. I want [need] you to like me! Casting people are humans just like you. And they are actually pulling for you. At least that's what they tell me. Be professional about it.
I'm a stickler for 'OFF-en. Unfortunately, 'OFF-tin' seems to be gaining popularity It's always a good thing to be reminded of those words that can become a little itchy in our work.
I'm also now thinking that, like nuclear, supposedly is also morphing unhappily into supposably. That has been a pet peeve of mine for decades! However, I have never heard a single human being on the planet say 'Ah-mund'.
Regardless irregardless is NOT a word I will never say 'Ah-mund' unless the client pays me extra money and runs a disclaimer at the end of the production stating that THEY chose to have the word pronounced that way and against the narrators better judgment!! Other than that, this article was spot on!!!
Another one is the word 'for'. I advise people to cross that word out and write the number '4' instead. No one says 'One, two, three, fer'!!! Also the word is 'Vee-a-kul' and not 'Vee-hickle'. One more, 'forward' is NOT pronounced 'Fo-werd'. Thank you Matt Lauer Here is a good link for usage:
