Don't bother looking the word up. It's one that I and a group of my friends made up many years ago.

I don't know, Big Carl; sounds like declaring a moral judgement before the act is performed...

...and I know many who are guilty of premoralation, and should be ashamed of themselves.

We encountered it during the Conservative's recent stint as minority government when the Prime Minister used it to avoid a no-confidence vote.

In UK English the word is prorogue.The act is prorogation.

Origin: late Middle English: from Old French proroger; from Latin prorogare 'prolong, extend', from pro 'in front of, publicly' + rogare 'ask'.

But "wether" is still commonly used, mostly in the form "bellwether," referring usually to a riding or electoral district that "leads the Nation." That is, it's returns (or primaries, in the US) come in early, and they usually show the direction the rest of the country will take. The term comes from the "bellwether," a castrated goat that was used to lead sheep through a narrow passage to their slaughter.

A number of years ago, a Montreal sports writer referred to a player as the bellwether of the team. The player asked a teammate what the word meant, and his colleague answered him with the literal definition. "Phil," he explained, "the man said you were a castrated goat."

A very appropriate metaphor for what we all get on erection day…

Oops. Election day.

Og, I spelled prorogue incorrectly. I misspell rogue/rouge on a regular basis, so I suppose my altered brain did it, again. Lol

Welcome Spirited Woman. Those are some great obscure words. A few of them I actually recognize.

Tio, bellwether is defined as LEADER in my dictionary. It says it comes from belling the leader of a flock. Nothing about castrastion, though.

propound - vt to offer for consideration: PROPOSE

Uncastrated bucks, be they sheepor goats, are leaders of flocks and herds, but not followers of people. They arequite untractable, and for domestication, docility is essential. Hence...Wiki has a pretty good dictionary entry on it.

I, too, switch rogue/rouge often, only remembering at the last moment that the elephant is GU and red face paint is UG..

Tio, Thanks for the clarification on wether. I hope I don't misspell weather or whether, because the difference in definition could seriously askew my meaning.

proposition(2) - vt to make a proposal to; specif: to suggest sexual intercourse to

RJ, the best rogue face-painters had to be indigenous warriors, and I personally favor the American Indians for their originality.

We touched on this word earlier, but it was never actually defined here;

propinquity - noun 1. nearness of blood: KINSHIP 2. nearness in place or time: PROXIMITY

Well, my mother was Mohawk, and I had an uncle who wore rouge when he went out hunting on Saturday night.

Good day, posters. I have a small gold compact with the red rouge my grandmother used to wear. It is much redder than the color I use, but back then, there weren't a lot of color choices. Truthfully, I have never used it to go hunting on a Saturday night. Should I give it a try?

propine(1) - vt chiefly Scot PRESENT, PLEDGE

propine(2) - noun Scot a gift in return for a favor

Oh this is WONDERFUL and FASCINATING! I read weird old books lots of time and had to search for the definitions of lots of obscure words

Two of the latest (and do forgive me forgetting what books I read these in...)

Viraginity- Masculine qualities in a woman
yclept- By the name of; Called

Both stuck in my head and for different reasons. Yclept just LOOKS so spiffy, I can imagine some noble person talking: "Prithee knave by what art thou yclept? Speakest before thine head is lopped off!" *giggle* (Of course would that be 'yclept' or 'yclepted'? I NEVER found out what part of English it is or was.)

As for viraginity... Suffice to say my Partner has LOADS of qualities of a masculine nature. :P
