Can I have a word?
Raven   Words to the Wise

I've often been struck wordless, finding a situation where I need a word better than what's available. Usually this is just because I've got a mental block around the word I want, but on a few odd occasions it's because there is no such word. Here, then, is my dictionary addendum.

As, in future, I'm struck by more blank moments, I may add more words to this page.

drime v. To criticise poetry without first knowing what it is about.
ebse adj. Gregarious-seeming, to hide shyness.
