- hexnut. Well, yes, actually you write this with a space between the words hex and nut, but I pronounce it as one word, and they look a bit weird when they are torn apart.
- unsternbedroht. German for star-crossed.
- tuppence. Most of September’s words have the colour of aged copper in different variations so I thought this might fit in quite well. It’s a sort of curious, peek-around-the-corner word, a bit tip-toey but jumpy, like a little girl from the 20s in a short light yellow dress hopscotching down a street near sundown.
