Word of the day: Gallimaufry

I keep seeing the word gallimaufry and here is a related post from the excellent Dovegreyreader. Gallimaufry has nothing to do with Doctor Who and means a jumble or hotchpotch (another great word). Now need to write it into a short story.


  1. Great word - I like hotchpotch too!

  2. Or how about 'fuddle', which is the hotchpotch of food you get at a bring-and-share meal.

  3. That's a great, new to me, word.

  4. Rosemary, Julia & Patsy - it is a great word! Also agree about hotchpotch, quite like a mish mash and fuddle is a fantastic word.
