Boojum, I certainly don't want to come off offensive, but I haven't even heard of "enrot" or "warthoggish." I guess I have trouble posting something after that post... which kinda takes the fun out! I personally would appreciate it if you would use words in a common vocabulary! Thanks!!

EricHamilton:

 

The words you are referring to are neologisms--words that I created, in the literary tradition of Lewis Carroll [who, as you can probably tell, is a favorite author of mine ;) ].

 

If you can't deduce their meaning, just click on the words--which are links--and you will see a new window containing their definitions.

 

I am aware that using neologisms is unusual, but there is really no practical difference between that and simply using some of the more obscure words in the dictionary. Either way, if you are to respond to an unfamiliar term, you will need to look it up somewhere before you can make an educated reply. And in this case it is actually easier: The page defining the words is a mere click away! :D)

(76 also refers to 76 Trombones in my family as my husband is a semi-professional trombonist (multiple degrees in trombone performance) so I'm in good company with all you TCH trombone guys! I myself am a professional clarinetist (make my money via clarinet) and LOVE music!)
