Words, Words, & More Words & Definitions Game!

Related Topics: Fun

This is my own idea so let's have fun...."Let the Games Begin!"

Rules: I will start with a word & I will give the first comment
so you can see how it is done. I give the definition to the
word give and give a new word for the next person. One
turn at a time, please. & wait until someone else gives a
new word.

Any word can be used, just play nice & remember we have
teenagers that play. Please..no politics here! I blog on the
political questions & blogs but come to the games for fun.

If you care to chit-chat with players & post pictures, feel
free to do so. I am a very outgoing person & like to
interact with other players ....I know some of you do too.

I will not block anyone unless it is absolutely necessary!
If I have a problem with anything, I'll send you a private
email on SH.

We will start with easy words, then as the game goes along,
we will have harder words....I am sure. So if you need a
dictionary...that is alright.

First Word: Happy

You!

    I am sure that he did not do it on purpose - he was probably on the wrong page and forgot to check after giving his answer.

    For you:
    Zwieback: the name comes from the German "zwei" = two and "-back", i.e. "backen" = to bake; baked twice. It is a rusk, biscuit or cracker from thin slices taken from a baked loaf and toasted, till they are dry and crispy.

    Zwieback originated in East Prussia, Germany. It is sweetened and made with eggs.

    Strange that because I have found several references to the word. Granted it is no longer a word that is in general usage and it was probably last used in the 1600s. But none the less it still is a word with a very defined meaning.

    Thank you, Joe61; I think that it must be a verb (to -) basing on the Latin verb bubulcitare, resp. bubulcitor (bubulcitate = imperative, plural) act, behave, sound, cry like a cowherd; the cowherd is bubuleus and in Vulgar Latin bovarius.
    It is a very rare word indeed; I went through my own dictionaries, books like Oxford and Webster's dictionaries (not on-line), and no result, except for my Latin dictionary (Bordas, French - Latin) ... On-line, I found very few entries and nothing about the origin, except for the relation with cowherd, resp. acting/working like a cowherd/farmer. On-line, I found this dictionary English - Latin:

    Sadly enough, when I visited Notre-Dame, there was a big storm, my umbrella was totally ruined, I was soaked, and we could only visit the inside, hence the link:
