Are there even any attested instances of *-ms- of the like in Finnic to check the projected outcome?

Anyway, preserving that root could have led to too heavy overloading in the number system and the resulting reshuffling of the numerals could have ended up in, well, discarding precisely that root. It's a pity really.

I just found out about this one:

squatch, v. to go out into the woods looking for bigfoot. Usually used in the expression "to go squatching".

(Wiktionary again lists it as only a noun, and Wiktionary again is wrong.)

Many seafaring terms in Dutch are very simple monosyllabic words, even though many people don't know what they mean anymore unless they are into sailing or rowing or something. Translations courtesy of wikipedia (I had no idea what most of these words were in English honestly). Incidentally, many of the English translations are also monosyllabic. I'll include verbs with the infinitival suffix -en.

Dutch - english - wiki
giek - boom - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boom_%28sailing%29
ra - yard - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yard_%28sailing%29
dol - ? - thing on a row-boat to which you attach the oars (hey another one !) for rowing - too obscure for wiki to have the dutch page for, at least
roer - rudder
reven - reefing - http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reven
jol - yawl (borrowing from Dutch btw) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yawl
gijpen - jibe or gybe - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jibe

etc. etc.

Oh, if you go into sailing the possibilities are endless. Just thinking of ship types, there are brigs, barques, ketches, snows, sloops, cogs, flutes, hulks, and so on.

The English cognate for 'dol' is 'thole' (while is also a verb for suffering, whereas a noun for suffering is dole), but this has generally been supplanted by 'rowlock' (pronounced nautically), or more recently just 'oarlock'. And wiktionary suggests a thole is a pin, rather than a lock, but I don't know whether that distinction is actually maintained by people.

Apparently a thole is also a part of a scythe - as are the snath/snaithe/snythe/etc, the beard, and the chine.

/rQl@k/.
By 'nautically', I meant 'eliminate or schwa-ise all vowels other than the first, and make sure the first vowel is short and closed as though followed by a cluster even when it isn't'.
So, rowlock > rolleck, forecastle > focksel, gunwale > gunnel. Though thinking about it that's not quite right, since 'boatswain' is bosun, not bossun, and 'topgallant sail' is 'tgallentsel', not 'tocslel'.
Anyway, it's similar to the way that you might try to pronounce a lot of English placenames or upper-class surnames. [eg 'alnwick' > 'anneck']

Oh yes, the wondrous pronunciations of English towns. Who could forget the historic and beautiful village of Clouscefeddeltoncester (pronounced, of course, identically to 'cluster').

Japanese borrowed 'Worcestershire' (as in the sauce) as Usutā.

Then again, Malay just calls it Engrish ketchup.

Real examples include Barnoldswick, pronounced 'bar lick'; Lympne, pronounced 'lim'; and the District of Columbia, pronounced 'hell'.

Cholmondely 'chum lee'. It also has a marquess, who everybody I ever heard say it pronounces as 'markey' because that sounds Frencher.
