    Dafydd bach,

    I'm afraid that although I said German compound nouns were OK I have no way of verifying this one and if the gap is not a typo then it's 2 words so I'm afraid it has to be disqualified

    Daniel, good one.

    Curses! Sulks Quietly (well,noisily, then!) Oddly enough, it isn't a typo, I've just tried to edit it, and no matter what I do, it puts that gap in. A Pox upon't! It actually is a genuine word, meaning Military vehicle servicing section, and it used to be proudly emblazoned above the relevant door at RAF Gatow, Berlin, in the 70s and 80s.

    Is that enough of a grovel, are you going to risk a grown man crying?

    I always mistrust words with any kind of military genesis, they are, more often than not, acronyms like Cincfleet, or Cincpac and as such should be disqualified...

    I liked sombrous though. H

    Et tu Brute!!! I know, I couldn't resist it.

    One word that I really do find poetic, on a serious note.

    This one always makes me think of Tom Sharp. Have you read Riotus Assembly?
