Based on the discussion of “chuffing” in the 1980 Words thread, I decided to look up “chuffy”. That’s a word I had come across years ago using an on-line anagram engine. Looking it up today on m-w.com, they precede the definition with now dial of a person (it means short and stout). I gather it’s from a dialect, but what dialect is ”now”?
P.S. m-w.com only gave me one shot at “chuffy” today because it’s from their unabridged edition, and I have to pay or sign up for a 14-day trial to see it again.
