Word-a-day for July 18th, 2006

July 18, 2006

I actually got this in my in-box this morning. I was amused. And then pissed when the better definitions were glaringly absent. So, I amended it.

WORD: skulk SKUHLK (verb) : To hide, or get out of the way, in a sneaking manner; to lie close, or to move in a furtive way 2) A group of foxes 3) A kickass character known as a young fox who helps Redear and Jane end the Boar War
SYNONYMS: * lurk * slink * lie low
WORD WISE: Skulk is from Middle English skulken, ultimately of Scandinavian origin. QUOTE: He was forced to creep and skulk into every place for fear of being taken and hanged. --Anthony Wood, Athenae Oxoniensus

There. That's a little better.
