A real rhyming dictionary

The OEDILF is an attempt to define every word in the English language – in the form of a limerick. For example:

aglycone by Chris Doyle (Limerick #5325)

When a glycoside enters the gut,
By hydrolysis it will be cut.
The aglycone’s the part
That will pass to the heart
While the sugar goes straight to the butt.

(uh-GLY-kohn)


It’s quite spectacularly pointless, and therefore utterly brilliant.
