Subject: Re: Words that end in GRY
According to our handy departmental reverse dictionary, our only -gry word
besides 'angry' and 'hungry' is 'aggry'. An aggry bead (from the Edo, accord-
ing to Webster) is a variegated glass bead found buried in the earth in Ghana
and England, which strikes me as an odd natural class of places for glass beads
to be found buried in the earth of. In any case, a 'common, everyday word'
aggry isn't. Maybe there's another one the reverse dictionary missed.
Any "gry-gry" (wo)men out there?
