"resembling a wire hanger"; this seems to be a word found only in dictionaries. --EncycloPetey 01:17, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
- As you say, the only hits on Google Books are collections of words — including one by Harper's magazine. According to someone on Wordnik (on of the few intelligible Google hits), apparently investigating this on his or her own, it was coined by a Harper's writer as a joke in the December 1976 issue. Because I can't find *resofinculum, *reso-, or *finculum (except as an improper scanning of vinculum), I'm inclined to believe it was indeed made-up. — Beobach972 18:17, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
