I love "salmagundi" and will use it whenever I next get the chance.


Salmagundi is the title of a Faulkner collection. That and the fact that I could imagine Faulkner suggesting that a character "asseverated" made me wonder if there was some sort of Faulkner subtext operating here, but on second thought I don't think it's that sort of gallimaufry.

Or something like that.


Of course, if any law student uses it, he will be condemned, and if any associate uses it, he will be laughed at. Only when you are an appellate judges who docket is made up most of people who did not speak your language as nearly as well as you do, can you use words like that.
