here is the definition of patavinity:

Pat`a`vin´i`ty, n.
The use of local or provincial words, as in the peculiar style or diction of Livy, the Roman historian; so called from Patavium, now Padua, the place of Livy's nativity.
Use of a dialect.

Daverbee managed to shock the judges with his definition:

and deserves special mention - the judges would love to know how he came up with this one! ;)


***************

I already knew the definition so I cheated a bit...for that I should be punished by listening to people from the Midwest trying to sound Southern for the next month... :(

Hmm. I think a better punishment would be that you win the dictionary game and have to come up with and judge the next word. So right now you're ahead on points!

rogitate n.

The correct term for "Helicopter Sex", whereby a small lady is rotated on a larger man's tumescence.
It was first invented by Sir Christpher Cockerell and his mistress, but scholars point out that Leonardo Da Vinci had several similar sketches many years in advance of the invention of kinky sex.

Rogitate:

Inappropriately agreeable while using radio communications.

Example of eggregious Rogitation; "Roger, Roger good buddy, I Roger your 10-20, Roger that".

rogitate (v.) - this is a nonsense word used in a popular, contemporary jump rope rhyme to indicate that preceding "pepper," the jumper is to turn around mid-jump while tapping one's temple, as in:

Cogitate!
Rogitate!
Cough up all the food you ate!

Cough up bacon!
Cough up beans!
Barf until you hit your teens - DOUBLE PEPPER!

He rogitated Gwynneth Paltrow with a Rogaine squirtgun, resulting in some hurried medical attention.

rogitate (v.) - to cause a selected body part to spin completely around in a seemingly impossible manner, like Regan's head in The Exorcist, or a Tex Avery eyeball. In the case of the legs and feet, their entirety should describe a wheel-like circle, while making the sound of a buzzsaw (the slide whistly/ricochet exit, called a pi-shew, is an entirely separate maneuver). The tongue, when rogitating, should flap loudly, like a wet windowshade.

Hi. Kudos to all authors of past definitions. I have laughed out loud more than once while perusing the thread.

Here's the new word:

PLEIOTROPY - The process of plaiting together several different types of thread or cord into a rope of intermediate strength.

Brynn 10-07-2005 08:05 PM

demarche (French) n. decisive step or action, especially diplomatic and initiating new policy.

Hey, glasshouse, what will you give yourself if you win? ;)

PLEIOTROPY - a moldable congratulative statue

Marcus Bales 10-08-2005 01:21 AM

pleiotropy - In the ballet, the tendency for all ballerinas to perform the same movement as the lead ballerina.

The pleiotropy of the flock of ballerinas was as astonishing as the synchrony of a school of fish. When Sonja did a plie, there was a wave of bobbing small female bodies around her.
