Ref. by Nabokov's Ada in ADA OR ARDOR as "the most extraordinary word in the English language" because it means two opposite things. Husked, as in botany: wrapped in a protective sheathing; and husked, as in common usage: undressed by another.
She was tightly husked by her underwear, but as she was willing, she was easily husked by the amorous youth.
