I've heard John Humphreys use it on radio 4 before now... but I admit I didn't know other than guesing from the used context what it meant.

I think it's definatley a 'woody word' as far as having a good sound goes:)

As a reader of the Telegraph (on-line) I seem to be learning new words on a regular basis.

If I said I had a) 'Chaffed' my knee or b) 'Harshly criticised' the FE for deleting my link to a banana fetish group, you would probably all understand (and some sympathise with) my point.

If I had used 'excoriate' on the other hand...?

Since I started working in close proximity with four woman in my office I have learnt a few new words. None of which I can repeat here. It's finger in the ears time when these women get started ;))
