1 a person or thing that growls, esp. slang a dog.
2 a small iceberg.
3 a euphemism for "something anatomical" [;->]
Rubbish Word of the Week:
tummy // n. (pl. -ies) colloq.
[childish pronunciation of stomach]
Ewwwwwww... Stomach, mid-drift and even belly are OK, but tummy is just plain wrong!
[Disclaimer: I have many favourite words, and equally ones I do not like.
Years ago, I got ribbed at work for declaring this thought, especially as I would confess a new disliked word everyday and for some reason, this caused much hilarity with co-workers. My colleagues would then teach me a new 'word-of-the-day' as they were uni buffs and I was teenager.
It's not that I like or dislike a particular word because it's meaning (real or not), It's just how it sounds when spoken that does it for me or not!]
