Today’s list of the day is made of names for the Devil and his minions, transcribed by user vanishedone from Charles P.G. Scott’s “The Devil and His Imps: An Etymological Inquisition” in Transactions of the American Philological Association (1869-1896), Vol. 26, (1895), pp. 79-146. It includes words such as pixie, brownie, spriggan, thurse, pooka, and hobthrush.
Today’s list of the day is about salt and saltiness (the chemical, crystal kind, not the personality kind). It has words like adarce, a saltish concretion on reeds and grass in marshy grounds; halce, a salt liquor made of the entrails of fish, pickle, brine, etc.; and salsuginous, a rare word for saltish or somewhat salt.
