The Oxford English Dictionary

"I use dictionaries as a reference to life. I see the dictionary as a kind of poem about everything - it's every story waiting to be told....Through language we make ourselves up. And if it's a reflection of us, it's also the means through which we become ourselves and share ourselves. So I suppose this massive dictionary is a sculpture of us somehow."

Pingle (PING-ul) - to nibble or pick at food; eat with little appetite.

How I could have used this word when my children were little. "Stop pingling!"
