Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
Ah, if only I had OED to hand! Those formations and usages make perfect sense here. If the word is meaningful and not simply a misunderstanding somewhere along the line (which now seems less likely than before) then we have as good a meaning as anyone could wish for, I think; and without the need for abstruse contortions. Thank you.
