  1. antitangle
  2. bioelectrical
    • 2007 February 15, Abby Ellin, “Keeping Tabs on Your Fat”, New York Times:
      The ones featured here all store data for four people and use bioelectrical impedance, a low level current that travels through a user’s body to gauge the amount of muscle and fat.
      add
  3. breathiness
    • 2007 February 15, Anne Midgette, “A New Work for Cello, Played Upon a Veteran”, New York Times:
      The smooth, even surfaces of Mr. Glass’s music expose his weaknesses as a pianist, but the faults added a kind of human breathiness to the piano’s embellished tread (reminiscent of Satie’s “Gymnopédies”) in the concluding piece, “The Orchard.” Ms. Sutter and her borrowed cello sang a little raucously over it, like Carly Simon at the end of the night.
      add
  4. caipirinhas
    • 2007 February 15, Roslyn Sulcas, “A Seductive, Tropical Mix to Melt Chilled Spectators”, New York Times:

      add
  5. cevapi
    • 2007 February 15, Kirk Johnson, “Anti-Bosnian Backlash Feared in Utah”, New York Times:

      add
  6. cutesiness
    • 2007 February 15, Zarah Crawford, “Vintage Clothes With an Eye on Tomorrow”, New York Times:
      What makes Frock so shopper-friendly is not just that it carries a range of sizes, but that its stock is carefully edited to remove anything that smacks of cutesiness or period costume, the most common pitfalls for the novice vintage buyer.
      add
  7. dancelike
    • 2007 February 15, Roslyn Sulcas, “A Seductive, Tropical Mix to Melt Chilled Spectators”, New York Times:
      This company from Bahía, founded and directed by Jelon Vieira, specializes in perfectly honed bodies performing a fusion of African dance forms, modern dance and capoeira — the dancelike Afro-Brazilian martial art developed as a form of self-defense by slaves in the 16th and 17th centuries.
      add
  8. flutelike
    • 2007 February 15, Stephen Holden, “Singing Songs of Time, While Watching It Stand Still”, New York Times:
      That outlook is embodied in Ms. Collins’s nearly vibrato-less singing in a voice that is in prime condition as she slides from a pure flutelike soprano into a gutsier middle register.
      add
  9. forwardable
  10. gymgoer
  11. gymgoers
    • 2007 February 15, Nora Isaacs, “A New Place to Strong-Arm Givers: The Gym”, New York Times:

      add
  12. handgrip
    • 2007 February 15, Abby Ellin, “Keeping Tabs on Your Fat”, New York Times:
      This scale, which has a handgrip with electrodes, offers a more thorough reading by sending a signal head to toe, its makers claim. Ms. Bauer didn’t think a fuller reading made a difference; her husband’s body-fat percentage was 2.5 percentage points lower than the hospital reading.
      add
  13. jivey
    • 2007 February 15, Roslyn Sulcas, “A Seductive, Tropical Mix to Melt Chilled Spectators”, New York Times:
      Ronald K. Brown’s “Thank You: to all the people we come from,” a solo choreographed for Carlos Dos Santos last year, is set to a well-chosen mix of music that opened with the infectious, jivey rhythms of Winston Rodney.
      add
  14. marchy
  15. masklike
    • 2007 February 15, Laura Rivera, “Fighting Snoring, and Its Dangers, Together”, New York Times:
      Patients like Mr. Hajjar, who is physically fit, are often prescribed a continuous positive airway pressure machine, a masklike device that drives air into the collapsed passage. Mr. Hajjar has used such a machine sporadically since 2004, but he does not like it one bit.
      add
  16. mediacentric
    • 2007 February 15, David Carr, “A Cheeky Broadsheet’s Tabloid Makeover”, New York Times:
      The new wrap is short on words and seems to exist primarily to create a front-page ad space (all the rage now) and to tie the mediacentric front of the newspaper to its back, where real estate is now treated as other tabloids treat sports.
      add
  17. merch
    • 2007 February 15, Eric Wilson, “Babes in Label Land”, New York Times:
      His playful point of view on youthful American sportswear, expressed in boxy mohair jackets with graphic resin bubble buttons and tomboy T-shirt dresses in superfine chiffon as bright as tangerine sorbet, is backed up with what stores would describe as the merch: easy scoop-neck cashmere sweaters in a mix of colors, lightweight T-shirts and sheared mink Army caps. Mr. Benz already has orders from five of the best boutiques in the country, including Linda Dresner in New York, Fred Segal in Los Angeles and Blake in Chicago.
      add
  18. midthought
    • 2007 February 15, Anne Midgette, “A New Work for Cello, Played Upon a Veteran”, New York Times:
      All the segments chewed over their ideas yet tended to end inconclusively, sometimes in midthought, as if they had reached the end of productive interaction with that particular line of inquiry.
      add
  19. misbehaviors
  20. nondebate
    • 2007 February 15, Francis X. Clines, “The New Congress Confronts Iraq in 12-Hour Swatches”, New York Times:
      A freer C-Span perspective could have helped the nation see what a nondebate is at the heart of this spectacle of serial talking heads, Ping-Ponged in partisan time calibrations and slotted in 12-hour slabs over three days.
      add
  21. nondebater
  22. nondeclarations
    • 2007 February 15, Richard P㪒ez-Pe㲁, “Giuliani Says He Is Running for President in ’08”, New York Times:
      But until now, he has repeatedly stopped short of a definitive statement of his intentions — even joking about his nondeclarations in recent days.
      add
  23. nonredemptive
    • 2007 February 15, A. O. Scott, “Whimsy, Pessimism and ‘Lady Chatterley’ in Berlin”, New York Times:
      Maria Speth’s “Madonnas,” a German-language film about an aimless, reckless young mother of five trying to get her life back together, might have been a Sundance film (it has some resemblance to “SherryBaby” ) but for the English subtitles and the decidedly nonredemptive ending.
      add
  24. overripens
    • 2007 February 15, Claudia La Rocco, “Dancers, and Their Company, Held Down by Gravity”, New York Times:
      This wasn’t so problematic at first: exhaustion actually suits Christopher Wheeldon ’s “Klavier,” a dark exploration of the moment when opulence overripens to decadence.
      add
  25. pastable
  26. phoners
    • 2007 February 15, David Pogue, “Freedom for Prisoners of Voice Mail”, New York Times:

      add
  27. postvictory
    • 2007 February 15, Richard Sandomir, “James Is Ready for His Close-Up ... Sort Of”, New York Times:

      add
  28. punchless
  29. recharger
  30. snakeskin
    • 2007 February 15, Michelle Slatalla, “As the Dust Bunny Moved, I Drew”, New York Times:
      Some pet owners face an even greater challenge — I realize it can’t be a picnic to remove an abandoned snakeskin from a cage — but my situation has been exacerbated by a vacuum cleaner crisis.
      add
  31. snowmaking
    • 2007 February 15, Penelope Green, “Making White Mischief”, New York Times:
      Finally, there is a nifty feature that will give you a seven-day snowmaking forecast based on your ZIP code and tell you how many days you could have made snow last year.
      add
  32. soilless
    • 2007 February 15, Leslie Land, “Garden Q.&A.”, New York Times:

      add
  34. thematics
    • 2007 February 15, Roslyn Sulcas, “A Seductive, Tropical Mix to Melt Chilled Spectators”, New York Times:
      African dance motifs feature strongly in “Ritual,” and although the titles of its seven sections suggest a history of Afro-Brazilian culture, thematics are largely moot in an enjoyable frenzy of undulating bodies, stamping legs and amazing physical feats.
      add
  35. transgressiveness
  36. unbottled
    • 2007 February 15, Francis X. Clines, “The New Congress Confronts Iraq in 12-Hour Swatches”, New York Times:
      The polemics are tinged with passion, especially from Democrats who are finally unbottled to rail against the administration’s downward spiral in Baghdad: “Chaos, not democracy, has taken root!”
      add
  37. underbody
    • 2007 February 15, Mitchell Owens, “Room to Improve”, New York Times:
      The couch where the likes of the composer Gustav Mahler and the American poet H. D. were treated was a decidedly more homespun affair hidden beneath a slipcover: a plump muslin-covered underbody with an integral sausagelike roll at one end, a large detached cushion for back support and two low fabric-covered platforms.
      add
  38. unimpeachably
    • 2007 February 15, The Associated Press, “Report Questions Breathalyzer’s Reliability”, New York Times:
