Default [Dixonary] Round 2998 KILDERKIN voting time

Folks,

Eleven definitions of KILDERKIN follow. Ten are from an expert panel that devoted substantial effort to coming up with them. The eleventh is correct. They have been edited (very slightly) for format consistency and are in ascending order of character count, which might not correspond to visual length in your email display font.

Please vote for two that you like for any reason (such as thinking they might be correct) by public Reply All to this message before the deadline that follows the list. If you realize now that you know what KILDERKIN means, please tell me by private email to emallach <at> verizon <dot> net.

1. a fragment; a trivial amount.

2. a flat-bottomed, usually ceramic, bowl.

3. a clay baking vessel for cooking roasts, stews, etc.

4. a corner adobe fireplace found in many western U.S. homes.

5. someone who is considered family though not actually related.

6. a unit of liquid measure that is equal to 0.9 US pint (0.43 liter).

7. a small four-wheeled carriage for children, drawn by a single horse.

8. a measure of volume equal to 18 gallons; a wine or beer cask holding about that amount.

9. a dam constructed of concrete and/or masonry on the outside but having a hollow interior filled with unshaped or uncoursed stones or rubble.

10. adults living in with older family members (usually parents) in a largely separate and independent part of the home, e.g. an attic or a cellar.

11. [Legal] a male cousin-german, a true first cousin—the son of one's uncle or aunt; the female equivalent, 'dotherkin' is very rare and not evidenced since AD1353.

The deadline for votes is 47+ hours from now: Tuesday, July 16, at 9 pm US EDT. According to timeanddate.com <http://timeanddate.com/>, that is:



and other times in other places. Please check any time conversion that applies to you. That site is good, but nobody's perfect.

New players are welcome to vote. Submitting a definition is not a requirement for voting; the only requirement is that you not know what this word means. Full rules at http://www.dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules <http://www.dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules> .

Vote on!

5 because there should be a word for that, and 8 because I just filled my liter oak barrel with rye, vermouth, and bitters for a week of barrel aging.Â* I’d prefer 18 gallons, of course.

Hi all!

For my votes, I will go with one family-related definition, and one
non-family definition.

#2 (the ceramic bowl) and #5 (the fake family)

Cheers,
Hugo

On of the units of measure and one of the relatives:

8 and 11.

8. a measure of volume equal to 18 gallons; a wine or beer cask holding
about that amount.

11. [Legal] a male cousin-german, a true first cousin—the son of one's
uncle or aunt; the female equivalent, 'dotherkin' is very rare and not
evidenced since AD1353.
