LILLIPUT LIBRARIES…..   https://www.facebook.com/Lilliput-Libraries

This is a excellent idea, executed with limited funding but bringing the joy of reading to streets all over Dunedin. I was happy to contribute to this by  stenciling the little library with out of date and obsolete words, I have listed the meanings in this post….

BOOKWRIGHT- A writer of books

BOUFFAGE- A satisfying meal

CALIGINOUS- Dark, dim or misty

JIRBLE- To pour out a liquid with an unsteady hand

LUNTING- Walking whilst smoking a pipe

GROAK- To silently watch someone eating, hoping to be invited to join them

RESISTENTALISM- The seemingly spiteful behaviour shown by inanimate objects

SNIRP- A Dr Seuss character notoriously found near 7-11’s

SNOUTFAIR – A person with a handsome countenance

SPERMOLOGER- A picker-up of trivia, news or gossip

TYROMANCY- Divining by the coagulation of cheese

UBIETY- The condition of being in a definite place

VELLEITY-a wish or inclination, but not strong enough to lead to action

WONDERWENCH – A sweetheart
