So as one who walks and smokes frequently would I be a Lunter?

Thanks for sharing the link. I may use some of those words just to jargogle my wife Laughing

Very cool. I'll be sure to use that.

So, is the past tense "lunted" or "lunt"?


E.g. I lunt yesterday. or I lunted yesterday...

Cool. Funky word, but cool.

Brian, it would seem it's a verb that would easily transpose tense like "hunt."

Lunt(s)- to smoke and walk
Lunting - the act of smoking and walking currently
Lunted - had once smoked and walked

Proposed examples:

"I'm going for a lunt, honey, have dinner ready when I get back, okay?"

"Lunting with a few friends after dark, we found a great park bench, and decided to sit for a spell instead."

"I lunted reluctantly with John last night, as he told me his tall tale of knocking out a grizzly bear with one punch."

Maybe?

Cool

Also, brownie points for whomever paired those owls with the words..."resistentialism" had a plastic owl, by example. Good touch. Laughing

So would the corresponding noun be "a lunt"?

"What a shameless, idle lunt!"

Good addition. I vote yes. Very Happy Although "pointless" rather than "shameless," you know, like when the wind is blowing too much or you forgot your lighter. Laughing

If it were a strong verb, there'd be a vowel change.

Yak, you threw down "callipygian" not-so-recently on some threads we were rambling in...a word I had to look up, but I'll never forget. Literally.

Oh, I was thinking about a person who lunts. But good point, the way you put it.

It could be: "Time for a lunt!"


BTW, I probably thought it would refer to a person becase this word reminds me of the Finnish word lunttu ("slut").

I've gotta make sure I've got this straight...

Going for a lunt is OK to tell SWMBO. Going for a lunttu, not OK. Twisted Evil

I too am enamored of the word. But I can't help but feel that telling one's spouse that he is going out for a bit of a lunt might awaken within her a recrudescent urge.

I'm with beetle that the word has licentious overtones.

I had a professor years ago that said to never send a man named "Lunt" to India. Such a man would not be well received.

Feeling crapulous? Do your friends think you groak like a sluberdegullion? Well, stop your twattling and lunt your way from jollux to callipygian snoutfair.

While I must default to Cigar2You's hegemony in this matter, this thread is floating lackadaisically in the vertiginous heights of hubris.
