- Maybe. M-W says "a form of crystal having 12 faces (such as a double 6-sided pyramid)", suggesting it's broader. Equinox ◑ 09:13, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Don't know what it's worth, but I've found quite a few funny-looking missing words in this document. Cf. especially "Clumps of insults for the dregs of society"
- quakebreech "coward"
- squeeze-grape "drunkard"
Your surmise that lothe was an antique version of loath is belied by (1) the use of both terms separately in the same text (namely the KJV translators)--presumably they used one or the other if they meant the same thing; (2) Webster's 1828 entry for "lothe" makes no such surmise. Is there some authority on which you replaced my definition? AnthroMimus (talk) 23:40, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
BTW, John Donne uses both lothe (in a specialized sense as I quote) and loathe. Cf the 3rd and 4th satires, both written in the mid 1590s. I suppose he didn't understand they were the saqme word as well? Looking forward to your reply. AnthroMimus (talk) 01:09, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
- Change it back if you want. Your entry had the wrong verb inflections so I thought it might just not be a very good entry. Equinox ◑ 14:01, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
A truly inscrutable "Keep"
Eq, I still love you like a brother, but there are very rare occasions when I wish there was an "unthank" button. -- You-know-who 05:10, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
- Haha. When I lived in the cold, lonely prison of Norwich University accommodation there was an "Unthank Road" nearby. I am sure it is still there. Go walk down that road until you feel better. Eqqy has his reasons. Love you too, slut. Equinox ◑ 05:27, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
- Unthank is a surname, mostly found in the North-East of England but there was a pocket of them in Norwich. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:19, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
