I had heard the word - I had a vague idea it was something to do with Morris Dancing.
Surprised it was common.
I was also surprised by emeritus being common in the summertime game. A word I remember from University where we had both an emeritus professor of English and a regius professor of English.
Coincidentally, regius had come in the discourage game the day before, but was 'uncommon'.

Yes welcome mjpanic. Good question about unary - sometimes there are words you just subconsciously know and they come to you in Chi and I think unary is one of them although I can't recall ever playing it before. But slangy and signally sound stupid to me and I would have said they're not words! Like a while ago I found the word "painterly" to be in the same category however many other forumites said they were quite familiar with painterly.

It's up there with signally, slangy and unary - not common to me. But like Valerie says another word to add to the vocab thanks to Chi. I would class it as rare however. i don't think these words cost us a rosette - not knowing them does.

Thinking about it, I used apostrophes in the example whereas 'hers', 'theirs' etc. don't have them.

I was one of the 102 who got it, and had a vague idea that it was connected to pantos/minstrel type things. I've probably never used the word.

I went to see a hilarious farce a couple of weeks ago, put on by a local rural troupe called The Moonan Mummers, centred on a little village called Moonan Flat in the Barrington Tops (our local 'mountain' range). It's definitely in my vocabulary.

I have never been to a panto but I know the word from village fete type activities.To me mummers are a variation on morris dancers but the power of Wikepedia tells me that they are more actors than dancers.

Definitely not in my lexicon, M.  Also cost me a rosette.  But you learn something every day!

Hi Pen,

I was pulling your leg about needing to look up transmogrify but a while back when you introduced knacked to the conversation I did go looking to see if it was a real word and I found it in several dictionaries.  The best definition I found was:

Quote from: The Urban Dictionary
Shortened version of "knackered". When you are so knackered you don't even have the strength to say "knackered" and can only go as far as "knacked".

The wife made me work out this morning. I'm totally knacked.

A friend of mine has contracted pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis Ė itís a bit of a worry.

I donít think Iíve seen this Benny Hill before
I indentify with this skit
A little more Kitty


P.S.   I see you've just posted.   I'm expecting a visitor so I will respond to it tomorrow
