  1. bootprints
    • 2009 February 11, Paul Evans, “Country diary”, The Guardian:
      Their bootprints turned to face the thicket of briar and bramble in exactly the same place mine had.
      add
  2. factettes
    • 2009 February 11, Zoe Williams, “Here's one we marred earlier”, The Guardian:
      Anne Robinson, by quick contrast: she derides and mocks; privileges the accruing of money, in pathetic units, above all other activities; rejects actual knowledge in favour of a simulacrum, factettes, collected randomly; made John Noakes cry.
      add
  3. federalised
    • 2009 February 11, Phillip Blond, “Letter: Blond on Blond and his antecedents”, The Guardian:
      The allies after the war federalised and localised Germany and de-absolutised Japan - their resulting renaissance suggests that decentralisation is anything but half-baked.
      add
  4. joylessness
    • 2009 February 11, Zoe Williams, “Here's one we marred earlier”, The Guardian:
      And now we're all so powerfully aware that we've got to reverse that impulse, but there's an austerity and joylessness to it.
      add
  5. masterclasses
    • 2009 February 11, Garth Cartwright, “Orlando 'Cachaíto' Lopez”, The Guardian:
      His remarkable musical talents would often surprise visiting musicians - Lopez liked to recall how he left masterclasses with the Czech classical bassist Karel Kopriva to rush to perform as part of the country music band on the TV programme Palmas y Canas (Palms and Sugar Cane) and the next day was confronted by the orchestra's visiting conductor, who couldn't believe Lopez was capable of playing such different styles.
      add
  6. overcomplex
  7. poxing
    • 2009 February 11, Zoe Williams, “Here's one we marred earlier”, The Guardian:
      It bordered on hectoring, really, especially poxing Why Don't You?, with its injunctions to find something more interesting to do than watch the telly.
      add
  8. sharpish
  9. strathspeys
    • 2009 February 11, Joseph Crane, “James Byrne”, The Guardian:
      The music of the area is essentially derived from the Scottish folk tradition, with strathspeys, reels, and "highlands" brought back by workers who would travel to Scotland for the "tattie" picking.
      add
  10. tattie
    • 2009 February 11, Joseph Crane, “James Byrne”, The Guardian:
      The music of the area is essentially derived from the Scottish folk tradition, with strathspeys, reels, and "highlands" brought back by workers who would travel to Scotland for the "tattie" picking.
      add
  11. tres *
    • 2009 February 11, Garth Cartwright, “Orlando 'Cachaíto' Lopez”, The Guardian:
      Accompanying his father, uncle and aunt Coralia (also a band leader) to rehearsals and concerts from an early age, Lopez witnessed such legends of Cuban music as the blind tres player Arsenio Rodríguez and heard Havana's dance orchestras develop a revolutionary blend of Afro-Latin music that would become hugely popular across the Americas.
      add
  12. understatedly
    • 2009 February 11, John Fordham, “Bobo Stenson/Martin Speake”, The Guardian:
      But Stenson is one of the most deeply resourceful jazz pianists in Europe, and Speake is an understatedly imaginative original.
      add
  13. workstream
    • 2009 February 11, Nils Pratley, “Nils Pratley: A sorry excuse for an apology”, The Guardian:
      Come on, you didn't need a single workstream (whatever that is) to know that pursuing a complex cross-border acquisition at the top of the banking cycle is a sure way to lose your shirt.
      add
  14. workstreams
    • 2009 February 11, Nils Pratley, “Nils Pratley: A sorry excuse for an apology”, The Guardian:
      Northern Rock had already cracked by the time RBS bought ABN Amro, pointed out one MP. McKillop protested that "15 workstreams" at RBS were saying the numbers on the deal still made sense.
