This has nothing to do with food! LOL

If you happen across an unusual word, or a word that isn't used often or spelled strangely.....post it here!

I think we could all benefit from extra vocabulary and their meanings. Just post them as you find them - along with the meaning.

Here are 2 to start with!

Neoteric - recent in origin; modern

Loblolly - a lout; a stupid, rude or awkward person (this one apparently is of British origin - lol

I'm fascinated by loblolly, a word I'd never seen before. It seems to have meant a thick gruel or porridge, and also thick mud or morass. I can see how that would come about. But couldn't find any suggestions for its meaning as a lout. There's also a meaning of medicine, but that could have referred to the consistency of medicinal brews long ago. The loblolly pine? Who knows?

Mona - you are correct on all counts of Loblolly.

This definition was from the Merriam Webster Dictionary from their Words At Play lists....amusing...here's the link for that page and it's explanation of how that word possibly came about.

Loblolly

Allyson, If you got that close to the word, you're doing better than I would. I don't drink coffee, but with no glasses everything says blur blur blur blur blur. Or maybe that's blah blah blah blah. Can't even tell for how long I'm supposed to boil the pasta without reading glasses!
