Guttle (…) meaning ‘eat greedily’, is the solid food companion to the more liquid guzzle. It seems a shame that one of these should have died out, especially as they make such a pretty couple. Indeed, if you want to make the twins near-identical you can guttle your food and guddle your drink. It is especially convenient for the enthusiastic gutguddler that both words can be pronounced with your mouth full or while swallowing.”

– from “The Horologicon” by Mark Forsyth
