  • First! (Wordnik says I'm the first to look up this word. Hooray!)

    Anyway, snabble is outdated slang meaning to steal, to snatch, to gobble up, etc. It's also a great deal of fun to say.

  • yeah, I know, it's supposed to be phlogistic. Tough. I like this better.

  • There's a guy I know who practically defines this word...I gave him a T-shirt with "obstreperous" written across the chest and he loves it

    More to the point, we used this a lot growing up. My boyfriend was always amused to hear my little sister (five years old or so) telling the dog to "stop being obstreperous!"

  • I love this word. I have for years.

  • actually, I use it all the time, in the phrase "by a unique concatenation of circumstances"

    in other words, there's a long story of meaningless reasons that led to this, but I don't feel like listing them
