uliginous - [yoo-LIDJ-uh-nus] an adjective meaning 'swampy,
slimy, oozy'. From a Latin word meaning 'full of moisture'.
- A fairly recent British slang term: the first recorded use is only
in the eighties, though verbal use must surely go back further. The
usual form is gobsmacked, though gobstruck is also found. It’s a
combination of gob, mouth, and smacked. It means “utterly
astonished, astounded”. It’s much stronger than just being
surprised; it’s used for something that leaves you speechless, or
otherwise stops you dead in your tracks. It suggests that something
is as surprising as being suddenly hit in the face. It comes from
northern dialect, most probably popularised through television
programmes set in Liverpool, where it was common. It’s an obvious
derivation of an existing term, since gob, originally from Scotland
and the north of England, has been a dialect and slang term for the
mouth for four hundred years (often in insulting phrases like “shut
your gob!” to tell somebody to be quiet). It possibly goes back to
the Scottish Gaelic word meaning a beak or a mouth, which has also
bequeathed us the verb to gob, meaning to spit. Another form of the
word is gab, from which we get gift of the gab.

- a satirical piece of writing posted in a public
place. Pasquin was the name of a statue in Rome that was often
dressed up to resemble a mythological or historical figure on St.
Mark's Day (April 25th). Students often composed verses to salute
Pasquin on his big day, and the verses were written on or posted by
the statue. The verses soon became satirical and the custom spread
to other countries, where satirical writings (with or without the
benefit of convenient statues to rest upon) were often signed ¿Pasquin.¿
