Entry:    Mondragonoid (adj.)

Definition:  A Wallace neologism, I think.  “…who requires only daily evidence that you speak?  That you recognize the occasional vista beyond your own generous Mondragonoid nose’s fleshy tip?” 

Other:    As with other entries, the made-up words are sometimes the most fun to investigate.  Did you know that Mondragón  is home to the world’s largest worker’s co-op?  It is also one of Winnipeg’s (bred and born!) anarchist hangouts – a bookstore/grocery/restaurant.

  1. Mondragon is the Moms' maiden name (see p. 64, 10th anniv. edition).

  2. That Winnipeg hot spot apparently no longer exists.
