“[I] have been at a great feast of languages and stolen the scraps…
as honorificabilitudinitatibus.”  – Love’s Labor’s Lost

I’ve been doing some more research on Tudor England lately, and the words I’m discovering delight me!  Including cooper, rufous, tatterdemalion, aglet, peascod belly, and parchminer (not to mention honorificabilitudinitatibus).

In addition, while writing a story yesterday morning I put down the word “trumble,” as in a loud, rumbling, trundling wagon.  Yet, when I checked on it later, I had apparently made the word up!  How is “trumble” not a word?  Doesn’t it sound like it should be a word??
