Default [Dixonary] Round 3266: Vote for FINEER

Presented forthwith are 10 definitions for FINEER, nine of which are the objects of players’ imaginations and one of which came from a reputable dictionary.



I’ll set a 36-hour deadline which is noon on Friday PDT, 3pm EDT, 19:00 UTC, 8pm BST, 9pm CEST, and Saturday 5am AEST and 7am NZST.* Seems we have more time zones than players these days…



1. decoration on the top of a gable or spire.



2. Patent leather (orig. a trademark).



3. Fermented goat cheese.



4. Flexible veneer.



5. Obs. veneer.



6. A blur in printing, as from a double impression.



7. An Indonesian dessert made with coconut milk, rice flour, and pandan leaves, also called bubur sum-sum.



8. The fashion effect the 18th-century Beau Monde male wanted to achieve with little effort or nonchalance.



9. Now arch. and rare. 1. trans. To wipe away; to wipe clean, cleanse. Also occas. intr. 2. trans. fig. To purge.



10. To run in debt by getting goods made up in a way unsuitable for the use of others, and then threatening not to take them except on credit.

a:link {color: #0000FF;} a:visited {color: #800080;} body { font-size: 12pt; font-family: Verdana; color: #000000; background-color: FFFFFF; margin-left: 10px; }

Although I suspect this is just a coincidence, I'll fall for these:





4. Flexible veneer.



5. Obs. veneer.

After eliminating all the others, I'm left with 3 and 7. It probably isn't either of those, either, but that's life.

I’m not convinced it’s similar to paneer or a type of veneer, but nothing
else is believable either. I'll vote 1 & 9.

Default [Dixonary] Round 3266: Vote for FINEER

I'll try 2 and 9 (although 9 is probably the Keating def).

2. Patent leather (orig. a trademark).

9. *Now arch. and rare.* 1. *trans.* To wipe away; to wipe
clean, cleanse. Also *occas. intr.* 2. *trans. fig.* To purge.
