Word verification Balderdash (26)

This fun meme was started by Sheila over at One Persons Journey through a world of Books, and is now hosted by Ryan G of Wordsmithonia.
This is the weekly meme where anyone who wishes to play along can take those crazy word verifications they have had over the past week and apply a fake definition to them (much like how you play the board game Balderdash).

Here are this week's words:

ickletat - noun - a slang term for a cute kitten, usually spoken in a singsong baby voice

trairm - noun - an elevated train, developed in the 1890s, that glided on a cushion of air; this invention was abandoned after a series of of accidents that resulted from the train veering off the tracks during windstorms

opallaru - noun - a quadrupedal mammal that lives in the grasslands of Africa; opallaru have been hunted almost to extinction by poachers who are after their unique, iridescent horns

singst - verb - an archaic and obsolete conjugation of the verb "sing"

SureU - noun - an institute of higher learning that, rather than teaching facts, teaches its students to believe in their own opinions... no matter how preposterous they might be; SureU, fittingly, offers online degree programs

trobbeg - noun - a mythical creature that lives in ditches along the sides of roadways and accosts passersby with pleas for money; trobbegs are similar in appearance to trolls, but have much poorer money management skills (hence their need to beg)


  1. Trobbeg has me rolling on the floor right now. Great week!

  2. I have to say these are some awesome words this week! I really do like these. I loved trairm! That could be like a steampunk novel. You should go write that one! Great words!
