[Dixonary] Round 3262 ULPIC defs - Vote Now!
 
I've got a rather miserable total of only 8 defs for ULPIC. Because of my
schedule over the next few days, I'm going ahead with voting anyway, so
your chances of hitting the real def are somewhat better than usual. Please
vote for your two favourites by public reply to this message before the
deadline, which is:

20:00 UTC/GMT on Thursday 30th June
21:00 BST in London
22:00 CET in France and the Netherlands
4:00 PM EDT in New York
1:00 PM PDT in California
08:00 NZST on Friday in New Zealand

New players are welcome - just don't look up the word until after you've
voted.

*** ULPIC ***

1. a kind of leek.

2. aioli: garlic cream paste.

3. the hard bony pincers of biting insects and crustaceans.

4. of or pertaining to the mesopalagic ("twilight") zone of the ocean.

5. an imaginary large four-legged beast with legs on one side longer than
on the other for walking on hillsides

6. of, relating to, or being an ancient Egyptian vase, urn, or jar used
to hold the viscera of an embalmed body.

7. of or relating to the ulpus, a toothlike projection from the second
vertebra on which the first vertebra pivots.

8. a tax levied by the state on mistresses kept by clergymen; imposed in
England and France from 1042 as part of a drive towards clerical celibacy.

9. an Icelandic dish comprising the meat of a Greenland shark that has
been allowed to ferment (traditionally by burial in sand for up to twelve
weeks) then hung to dry for several months.

Re: [Dixonary] Round 3262 ULPIC defs - Vote Now!
 
1 and 9 are clear vox pop, but I don't believe 9 because it sounds too much like the recipe for Norwegian gravlax. #5, as someone obliquely pointed out earlier, is a haggis as sold to any number of tourists in Scotland as a joke souvenir. (I'll be among that breed in mid-August, and hope to eat haggis at least once, but I won't get one of the little pottery beasts.) I also don't imagine that England and France would have collaborated on taxation before the Norman invasion. And I used to know the word for that Egyptian jar, probably from reading too many "Elizabeth Peters" Peabody/Emerson books, and I don't think it was this. Another gets eliminated because of what I think is a misspelling, though I could be wrong on that. It could be 1, though it probably isn't, so I'll vote 1 and 2.
