Since I love the letter q, let's go with words that start with "q". (Can you tell I used to love to play Scrabble?)

quire (n)

/kwī(ə)r/


  1. One-twentieth of a ream of paper; a collection of twenty-four or twenty-five sheets of paper of the same size and quality, unfolded or having a single fold.  
  2. (bookbinding) A set of leaves which are stitched together, originally a set of four pieces of paper (eight leaves, sixteen pages). This is most often a single signature (i.e., group of four), but may be several nested signatures.
  3. A book, poem, or pamphlet.
  4. (archiac) a choir.
  5. The architectural part of a church in which the choir resides, between the nave and the sanctuary.
Etymology: 1175–1225; Middle English quayer < Middle French quaier < Vulgar Latin *quaternum set of four sheets, derivative of Latin quarternī four each


verb

(bookbinding) To prepare quires by stitching together leaves of paper.

third-person singular simple present
quires, present participle quiring, simple past and past participle quired)

Tomorrow's word: qat.

in·du·bi·ta·ble [in-doo-bi-tuh-buhl, -dyoo-]
adjective
that cannot be doubted; patently evident or certain; unquestionable.
Origin: 1615–25; < Latin indubitābilis. See in-3 , dubitable


And then there is the variation:

indubitably (ɪnˈdjuːbɪtəblɪ)
— adv
without doubt; certainly


Back in the deep folds of my memory is the sound of some cartoon character saying "indubitably". Snagglepuss? Yogi Bear? Anyone here able to help me out?

One of my favorite scrabble words because you don't need a "u" to use the "q".

qat

kæt kɑːt]n (Law / Recreational Drugs) (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Plants) a variant spelling of khat

Collins English Dictionary – Complete and Unabridged © HarperCollins Publishers 1991, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2003

kat or khat (kɑt)

n. 1. the leaves of a SW Asian and African shrub, Catha edulis, of the staff-tree family: chewed as a stimulant or made into a tea.
2. the shrub itself.
[1855–60; < Arabic qāt]

Tomorrow's "q" word: quipper

The DH and I play "words that start with q" when we are on road trips.
