scads

Postby KatyBr » Tue Jun 21, 2005 1:42 pm

since my word suggestrions don't seem to be well-liked here is another try
scads - a large number or amount; "made lots of new friends"; "she amassed a mountain of newspapers"
dozens, gobs, heaps, lashings, loads, lots, rafts, scores, slews, stacks, tons, wads, oodles, piles, mountain
large indefinite amount, large indefinite quantity - an indefinite quantity that is above the average in size or magnitude

Some words with "scads" in the definition:
Carangidae,dozens,family Carangidae,genus Decapterus
gobs,heaps,lashings,loads, lots,mountain,oodles,piles
rafts,scad,scores,slews, stacks,tons,wads,

Scads of piles would be rather uncomfortable.

I take it the Carangidae is some type of insect or something...?

Scads of Carangidae, a hidden pun...

In the game in which one is asked to respond immediately, without thinking, to one word with another, my guess is that the most frequent response to «scads» would be «money». Alas, having no experience, I don't really know....
