Squib (); a brief satirical piece of writing or speech. I never heard of this word, but came across it while browsing for classes to follow; one of the examination requirements was to write a 'squib style article'. Never heard of the word before.

'squib' reminds me of another:
dud : a bomb/shell that fails to explode;; extended to mean anything that doesn't perform the way that it should/is-expected-to

Yesterday I typed "swarf" when I meant to type "dwarf" and discovered it's an actual English word with the technical meaning "the waste chips or shavings from metalworking or a saw cutting wood" or "the grit worn away by use of a grindstone or whetstone, being particles of the material being cut and of the cutting stone itself".

Yes, you're right. I seem to have overlooked the OE meaning in the article on "swerve", sorry.

On a mostly unrelated note, I think geswearf is my new favorite word (of the day, anyway). Man I love Old English.
