Word Wars

I have been in a few verbal skirmishes in recent days.  So be warned: I've found a wonderful new resource called onelook.com.  This collates the content of 1,060 English dictionaries, giving about 19 million definitions.  You can do partial searches, wild cards, reverse searches, the lot.

After a very quick skim, I can report that 'kapati' and 'patrashil' do not exist as entries in any of those dictionaries.  'Jargogle' crops up three times.  (I'd assumed it was a Lallans word, but it isn't.)

All comers now welcome.  The gloves are off.
