  1. anyfink
    • 2009 January 13, Simon Hoggart, The Guardian[1]:
      We wouldn't want anyfink to happen to that Laugh & Learn game, now would we?
  2. battlefleet
    • 2009 January 13, Dan van der Vat, “Bill Stone”, The Guardian:
      By the summer of 1919 he was serving with the Atlantic fleet at its principal base in Scapa Flow, Orkney, where he witnessed the scuttling of the imperial German battlefleet, interned there after the armistice pending the outcome of the peace negotiations at Versailles.
  3. blokeish
    • 2009 January 13, Editorial, “Editorial: Careless talk not just a royal mess”, The Guardian:
      Former and serving soldiers have tried to explain away the prince's language as ill-judged blokeish joshing, the sort of thing that is commonplace among close friends serving in tough circumstances - but the police once used this defence too, until forced to confront modern reality.
  4. combes
    • 2009 January 13, John Vallins, “Country diary”, The Guardian:
      Steep-sided gullies, combes and clefts - Holford Combe, Hodder's Combe and Willoughby Cleeve - are carved out of the hillside and there are fast-running streams crossed by stepping-stones.
  5. dhamma
    • 2009 January 13, Lasantha Wickrematunga, “'I hope my murder will be seen not as a defeat of freedom but an inspiration'”, The Guardian:
      But to do so by violating the rights of Tamil citizens, bombing and shooting mercilessly, is not only wrong but shames the Sinhalese, whose claim to be custodians of the dhamma is for ever called into question by this savagery - much of it unknown to the public because of censorship.
  6. hellos
  7. melodeon
    • 2009 January 13, Derek Schofield, “Francis Shergold”, The Guardian:
      His brother, Roy, joined him as a dancer - their two-man jigs were much admired - and his nephew, Jamie Wheeler, has become the side's principal musician, on melodeon and fiddle.
  8. nazism
  9. opencast
  10. outbases
    • 2009 January 13, Terry Macalister and David Teather, “From earth movers to art market the layoffs keep mounting”, The Guardian:
      It said: "This proposal will affect the employment of all Wincanton employees at these sites and their associated outbases, which amounts to approximately 450 at Gloucester and 415 at Trafford Park.
  11. saxist
    • 2009 January 13, John Fordham, “London Jazz Orchestra”, The Guardian:
      But tenor saxist Josephine Davies coolly developed a brass fanfare composed by Lowther over Clarvis's baleful tattoo, and the same composer's dark, winding melody (a deftly crafted musical palindrome) brought a stream of lyrical variations from Speake.
  12. soundworld
    • 2009 January 13, Andrew Clements, “LPO/Elder”, The Guardian:
      Though one occasionally missed the plushness of a full string section, Mahler's soundworld is often pared down in this hybrid of song cycle and symphony, and the reduction preserves the colours of his orchestration, with a piano and a harmonium added to flesh out its harmonies.
  13. unconducted
    • 2009 January 13, Andrew Clements, “LPO/Elder”, The Guardian:
      Overprominent woodwind had been a problem in the unconducted performance of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll in the first half of the concert, and though Nilon's singing was wonderfully characterised, he struggled to get his words across in the opening song of Das Lied almost as much as he would have done in front of a full orchestra.
  14. uncorrupted
    • 2009 January 13, Caroline Sullivan, “Chris Brown”, The Guardian:
      But what sets the Virginia-born Brown apart is a boy-next-door mildness that ensured his tweeny fans would leave the show uncorrupted, if lighter of purse.
  15. unorthodoxies
    • 2009 January 13, Geoffrey Goodman, “Aubrey Morris”, The Guardian:
      It was indeed Aubrey's principal hobby, and allowed him to air his unorthodoxies.
