Friday’s web zen–wordy
–includes a link to
Ask Oxford,
the place where Oxford Dictionary aces answer all of the peculiar questions you
simply can’t go another day without having resolved.  Examples:

the opposite of exceed

the word for a word which is another word spelled backwards
, and

words containing uu
. Splitting at the hyperseams with lexical
overmuchness, this site is.

My favorite Q&A, however, and the one to which I first returned for practical
usage was
name for a group of cats
: clowder.  When the Villanova Wildcat
contingent rushed the court after knocking of #1 UConn (much to my satisfaction,
I’ll add) earlier this evening, I had something to call it by.
