Word of the week, 31st October

I actually managed to use “meretricious” a little this week, mainly explaining its meaning, but it really is very satisfying to say.

This week’s word, paying some attention to Christmas *shudder* tradition, is:

Slubberdegullion

Slu-ber-dih-gull-ee-on; noun; A foul, villainous and worthless person.

It’s such a fantastic insult. Possibly formed from a mix of words from around Europe, this is in no way a compliment. It rings like a pantomime line, and it somehow both rolls and spits out of your mouth, making it especially satisfying to say. Not too harsh, but not too comical. Now go and do something productive, you slubbdegullions.
