MGM , I think, had a thread somewhere about how he came across some word in a crossword that he'd never heard of before and then he started seeing the word everywhere. I just had a look at another thread , which mentions the word "stork" .
Jack Campin writes about the origins of the tune to The Battle Hymn of the Republic : " It's used as a dance song by the Hungarians of Transylvania, called ""Golya, golya" (Stork, stork), for a processional dance rather like the Gay Gordons."
