    Frabjous comes from Lewis Carroll’s wonderful nonsense poem Jabberwocky. It’s one of four made-up words that have made it into common usage and the Webster and Oxford dictionaries. The others are burbling, galumphing and Chortle. Not bad for a string of gibberish meant to entertain children.

    Thing is, once spelled and uttered they are all quite understandable, logical and great fun. I love galumphing.. anyone who has spent years on horseback can conjure a particular picture of what it means, when it occurs and what it sounds like.

    Let’s not forget “uffish thought”.
    I often stand in that.
