Word of the Day: Glemanuilt

Tonight I dug out my dog-eared copy of The Meaning of Liff; “a dictionary of things that there aren’t any words for yet” by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd. All the words are in fact place names to which they assigned appropriate (or inappropriate) definitions. I must have had it for at least ten years, the inside cover has my name and form group written on in pencil – Alastair Craig 8CD.

Anyway, one that particularly struck me today was…

Glemanuilt (n.)

The kind of guilt which you’d completely forgotten about which comes roaring back on discovering an old letter in a cupboard.
