I gathered that :P

And you took the bait. The word contains the exact shade of meaning I wished to convey (which the rest of the offered list did not), using acceptable rules of roots with correctly applied suffix definitions. It's truly serendipitous that many writers place communication of their inner feelings along with fluid use of grammar, syntax and many other factors or our language would be much poorer. God forbid that our Twains, Kiplings or Nashes would shrink from jerking chains.

I was jsut tickled that you held up your pedanticity for target practice and my curiosity over whether you'd defend it was uncontainable.

Don't fret, it was jsut a lark.

Over and out.
