New Words

The ancient Greek adjective βαθύκολπος can mean "with deep, full breasts" (Liddell and Scott), whence jocular English bathukolpian or bathycolpian, the latter used by Oliver Wendell Holmes in The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table. A friend suggests adoption of the new words bathycolposcope (dark glasses allowing one to stare, without fear of detection, at a bathycolpian woman) and bathycolposcopy (surreptitious glance at a bathycolpian woman).
