  1. fullscale *
  2. galactico
    • 2009 February 23, Editorial, “Editorial: Brown in Berlin, image and reality”, The Guardian:
      The danger about each of Mr Brown's weekend initiatives - his appearance as a galactico in Team Europe and his robust hostility to excessive lending - is that each may be more tactical than strategic, more appearance than reality.

    • 2009 February 23, Christopher Hawtree, “Christopher Nolan”, The Guardian:

  7. trinities
    • 2009 February 23, David McKie, “Of deadly sins and dwarfs”, The Guardian:
      Our world is infested with lists of seven, far more so than lists of eights and nines, and more even perhaps than threes, though they are a powerful assembly too - especially in religions: even the earliest religions had defining notions of trinities.

  1. allureful - protologism at best
    • 2009 February 23, David McKie, “Of deadly sins and dwarfs”, The Guardian:
      The recent appearance of Will Smith's Seven Pounds - not, to judge by reviews so far, that auspicious a title - further expands an impressive list of films involving allureful seven (or in one case, Se7en): the Seven Samurai, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Seven Days to Noon, would not have quite the same tingle about them if you substituted an eight.

  1. permissable common misspelling
