Douglas Adams and John Lloyd wrote The Meaning of Liff, which took obscure place names and gave them rich new meanings. Adams and Lloyd describe a 'liff' as 'A common object or experience for which no word yet exists.' Nigel Bayley applied this idea to words, mainly proper names, found in the Bible. So, for example: Achbor (n.) The moment during a sermon when your head suddenly lolls forward and you realise that today's message is not quite as impactful as you had hoped it would be. Particularly embarrassing if you are the preacher. Bether (v.) To struggle not to lose it with the intelligent child on stage who is ruining your poorly thought out children's talk. Hittite (n.) One towards whom your immediate and overwhelming pastoral instinct is to punch them really hard in the face.
