A Interloper in alt.usage.english Theater
ok. There's fancyman, old hats, interloper, Nero fiddling, waffly, miasma, and the Gippers.
do you know their meanings, allusions, connotations, etymology? For my own good, i produced:
Particularly interesting is the etymology of waffle. There doesn't seem to be a sure answer. Also, miasma is a good one to dig up. Nero fiddling to history. And the Gipper for American slang.
