Pronounced: SLUB-er, verb
Notes: This looks too much like “slobber” for me to work out the meaning
The word mumpish means “sullen; silent; depressed”
Our word came into English in the early 1700s
Background / Comments
This sounds like a great word to work into conversations. It doesn’t have anything to do with the sickness called “mumps”. Our word comes from mump (grimace). It is thought that it is an imitative origin.
