Word of the Week: ‘Sneap’ (n.) – snub, reproof, rebuke
‘My lord, I will not undergo this sneap without
reply. You call honourable boldness ‘impudent
sauciness’; if a man will make curtsy and say nothing,
he is virtuous. No, my lord, my humble duty
remembered, I will not be your suitor. I say to you I
do desire deliverance from these officers, being upon
hasty employment in the King’s affairs.’
[Falstaff to Lord Chief Justice]
