    Spelling is overrated.

    I think that word is pretty-much universal!

    Put a hyphen between re and licked and it means something else entirely.

    In the context.of the process of artificially aging stuff...

    I happen to think that 'returning lice' to whatever one is destroying is the perfect description of the activity.

    So, if I wake up tomorrow and find that my Cods swelled up, don't worry, it's nonsense?:p Is swelled a word?:confused:

    Yes, yes & yes! I'm glad that someone else understand this. Forget the OED, nobody there understands what guitarists mean by the word "relic", so you can't quote that book. There's a logic to the English language so it MUST be relicked. Reliced is stupid & an apostrophe has no place in a word like that.

    It's RELICKED!

    It's either a pedantic day, or Pedantic Day.
    Make up your mind.

    That word is the only word in the English language (that I know of at least) that can be used as a noun, an adjective, a verb & an adverb. I would love to show y'all a sentence that proves this, but that sentence would probably break several ST rules at once...

    Neither. If there was such a day, it would be Pedants Day.

    That depends on what, exactly, you've been licking.
