    Thank you so much, lh! That Notes and Queries link is Christmas come early for me. I have a couple of the bound volumes in my collection and they’re a treasure trove of the abstruse and the fascinating, with etymology, in particular, cropping up frequently. Now I can happily squirrel through the whole series!
