An extinct kind of parrot. They had no wings, beaks turned up, and made their nests under sundials; lived on veal.

A thin shabby-looking bird with its feathers sticking out all round — something like a live mop.

The first ‘o’ in ‘borogoves’ is pronounced like the ‘o’ in ‘worry’.

Charles Dodgson's nonsense word, found in 'Jabberwocky'. Approximates to a 'copse' or 'glade' but with connotations of paludality or murkiness.
"All mimsy were the borogoves
And the mome raths outgrabe"
