I believe Myr has been using a 19th dictionary lately, because I hadn't heard many of the words he's been using over the past couple of weeks before.

It's comforting to know I am not alone. My first thought was of a ragamuffin.

Ragabash is a Briticism.

 

Which lead me to a rather surprising reference,

Dictionaries of the Scots Language:: SND :: ragabash

Go figure?

 

This sure beats dumpster diving, cleaner and less smelly too:puke:,

This isn't the only Word of the Day that we've discovered was mostly used in Scotland.

Saruman considered Radagast the Brown a ragabash, but at least he wasn't under Sauron's power.
