Before my source “walks” away…

.

Another old word or three that the Oxford has forgotten all about:

.

Jugbitten¹

.

Noonscape

.

Ooth

.

For more use the DOOR..

.

   [MORE]

.

   Jugbitten (adj.) — drunk

.

   Noonscape (n.) —  a siesta

.

   Ooth (adj.) — raging mad  (accordion to adozenseconds.com we suggest a possible connection of this word with “ootheca” pl. “oothecae,” which is the egg case of cockroaches, mantises, and related insects).
