schmierkase. Timothy, given that I'm a linguist, I have a license to write definitions <g>. In linguistics, there is also that class of words that are called "family speak." If BuckyTom's family uses the term for MW, mayo, or other things that spread, then that is a word that is part of BT's family speak. In my family, "boo" means a pan that is left soaking in the oven. And, we have others that are words we understand, but are not in the dictionary.

Just make sure that Fed Ex goes by weight and as you go further south the igloo should weigh less and less...diminishing shipping rates...

Aww! My girlfriend has a Meyer Lemon tree growing in her front yard. She lives in Cypres, CA. There are so many lemons, that she lets her neighbors pick as many as they want. The ones that fall to the ground are a nusience as they draw bees and other stinging critters. Every Sunday morning, seh go out and picks a bunch of them and makes a big pitcher of lemonade.

Schmierkase. Oh, dear, don't remind me. I couldn't get it past my nose, and it's a much beloved local cheese. Probably the only cheese I couldn't make reach my mouth.

Thanks for the information. It's not a word in common usage then...

Family speak is limited to the family; a colloquialism is a word or phrase that is used in common-day conversation. I rather doubt if I referred to having a boo in the oven that the average person on the street would know what I meant. Each family has words that mean something within the family (often the result of children learning the language and the words stay) or if the family immigrated--then some words used may be a combination of the word in the new language and the native language.
