Uxbridge English Dictionary

Postby mittfh » Thu May 16, 2013 8:00 am UTC

This may prove more popular than my recent attempts - namely in that I haven't devised it myself - it's lifted directly from the antidote to panel games, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. I've even lifted the intro and a few examples to set you off...

ISIHAC wrote:English is a complex language, and it's easy to get various terms confused, for example many people are ignorant of the difference between a prediliction and a pecadillo. Well, if you take trouble to look them up you'll find that a prediliction is a preference or partiality in favour of something which is always predetermined, whereas a pecadillo is one of those little boats you hire on beach holidays.

Anyway, words are constantly changing their meanings, so I'll ask you to suggest any new definitions you may have spotted recently.


To start you off:

Misfit - a great looking teacher
Pie crust - what you get if you don't polish your pike
Cursory - where very small children learn to swear
Fastidious - very ugly sprinter
Semolina - a system of signalling using puddings
Asbestos - Greek Anti Social Behaviour Order

(Feel free to suggest multiple words per post - if you're stuck for inspiration, there are plenty of bootleg recordings of the game on YouTube...)
