"An action that was unintended". Not convinced that this is what this word means. If it fails, please deal with any related thesaurus/synonym detritus. Equinox 02:33, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

In several dictionaries with two other definitions: "watery food or drink".
slipslop in The Century Dictionary, The Century Co., New York, 1911 also has "blunder".
