I've only seen lithe written, and never really heard it, so I've lacked a context to show me exactly what it is. It was just an archaic word for slender. And until the other day when I looked in Wiktionary I always imagined it to be pronounced /li:T/.

Edit: and buxom I don't assosiate with the general figure, just the size of the breasts.

I've been getting some fun replies to this elsewhere, so I'm curious to hear y'all's responses:

Wardrobe. I had to look at a bit to make sure it wasn't a designer side by side fridge and freezer combo.

It kind of reminds me of...one of those pantries that you...build yourself from pieces that are provided to you? My brother has one of those. I'm not sure how to describe it.

If it's in a bedroom it's a wardrobe, anywhere else it's a cupboard (and that was my first reaction to seeing it, too)

I would assume it's a wardrobe. It might perhaps be a full-length cupboard, but those aren't very common. It could be built-in fridges, freezers, or other household appliances. I can't think of any other possible names. Except that there are some functions that might override its form - if you keep guns or ammunition belts in it, it might be a gun locker or a magazine? If it were in the changing room at a stadium, I might call it a locker, even if it doesn't lock, just on the basis that it would be taking the role traditionally filled by a locker?

First word into my head, before I read anything you said, was cabinet. Then I thought of pantry (I typically think of pantry as a specific room/closet, but if this thing was in a kitchen and food was stored in it, I could still call it a pantry--my parents' house is like this, and their cabinetry looks fairly similar to that picture, which is probably why I thought of this so quickly).

Interestingly enough, plain ol' "cupboard" didn't occur to me until I read Kath and Sal's posts.

I would not call it a "wardrobe"; to me, that implies a piece of furniture with legs that is detached from the wall that you could move around and such. (also, "wardrobe" always makes me think of Chronicles of Narnia anyway) If it were in someone's bedroom and they stored clothes in it, I suppose I might call it a "closet".

I honestly feel like half the problem with that thing is knowing what the hell it is. Like, what is it for? Is it for storing clothes, food, papers, or what?

I mean, I guess on some level, it's basically a box. :P We just wouldn't really call it that.

It's not a box! Boxes are made of paper, are less durable and give significantly worse access to the items, if you want to put them in and take them out frequently!

And boxes made of wood are not boxes, but crates, and they are only ever used in Worms.

If what I just wrote sounds weird to you, that's basically how the last few posts here sound to me.

Okay, I'm gonna have to ask you what these wooden crates in Worms are.

Well, crates? Wooden containers with some useful things in them?

* * *

Another question: how would you call this thing?



(Let's suppose I've already put all my in a wardrobe/cabinet/cupboard and I want to store food in this one.)
