And no, compleat is not munson'd it is Olde English.After more than 2 years of being degraded I come to the readership with the astonishing news that there are NO munsons, just a failure of the readership to utilize the unique faculties of munsonese, a derivative form of, but no less valid extension of, the English language. An understandable oversight, partially corrected today with the first installment of this The Compleat Munson Dictionary and Reference Guide. Now, whenever a reader comes across a word that heretofore would engender the appellation "munson'd", a quick referral to this source will clear up the confusion.In most cases I provide not only translation but derivation and cultural context. There is also a reference guide to some terms and concepts which may be unfamiliar to the newer NUGies. Caveat: the list is partial, and growing (I know I said "compleat", but that's because it looked cool in the title. Sue me.)
