Revived Words

These are old words revived into my common use.

To have the name of, to be called: eg I hight Wendy, or This hight a polytope.
With great speed.
      Quick means lively
      Fast means held in one place (fastner), the sense comes from fast on one's tail.

Words with slightly altered meanings.

In the polygloss, this always means perpendicular to. When one dances around the maypole, one dances in the space where the maypole appears as a point.
      We also talk of arroundings. See entry in the rounds.
This is always solid in the plane of the thing. When one is surrounded, then all of the means of exit are covered: because of gravity, this might be only a 2D closure.
