dreadnaught (plural dreadnaughts)

  1. Alternative spelling of dreadnought
    • 1851, Herman Melville, Moby Dick, chapter 3
      Going to his heavy grego, or wrapall, or dreadnaught, which he had previously hung on a chair, he fumbled in the pockets, and produced at length a curious little deformed image with a hunch on its back, and exactly the colour of a three days' old Congo baby.
