Word Of The Day 5-7-2017

cornobble

verb


Definition

smack somebody with a fish


Example

I cornobbled Jason with a trout.


I found little else about this word (except for mentions), but couldn’t toss it out because what language doesn’t need a word for smacking somebody with a fish?

I did find reference to cornnobble in “A glossary of dialect & archaic words used in the County of Gloucester. Edited by Lord Moreton” at https://archive.org/stream/glossaryofdialec25robeuoft/glossaryofdialec25robeuoft_djvu.txt

Anybody have any other information?
