New word

This morning, as I lay semi-wakeful at the Highlands Inn—we had gone to the wedding of Michael and Catherine Giel in Decatur last night and decided not to drive home— I had an interesting dream. I was either working on a website or standing at a smartboard, and I was defining what essentially were nonsense words. One of them stuck in my mind, and I wrote it down upon arising.

The word is vuking, and what I remember most vividly was belaboring the pronunciation. It is, I am informed, pronounced VOO-king (not view-KING as some would have it), and after a couple of repetitions it dawned on my what a tremendously useful word it may become.

Feel free to add it to your vocabulary.

  1. So, what does it mean? (In “Dalespeak”, of course). I’d like to use it correctly…

  2. Is it indeed? Well, who knew? I certainly couldn’t have possibly had even the slightest hint of a trace of an idea of such a thing.
