Carcass Word of the Day Calendar Jan. 10, 2007

We all know Carcass was able to throw out a slew of sesquipedalian words like few other metal heads, but the Birmingham grinders were not infallible. “Pedigree Butchery” on Carcass touchstone Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious mixes actual SAT prep vocab with a the occasional misspelling and words of dubious origin. Every test taker knows, when in doubt, just fill in the bubble for C and move on.
"Desparental, prim[i]paral goods oozing
The bawling, squabbling denied the suckling teat
Sentient bloodletting sprains the sporulate
Makes a choice chimerical treat"

Desparental – a Carcass creation and not a real word, but we assume it relates to one’s parentage.
Primiparal – adj. (misspelled in the lyric sheet and the word is actually primiparous. Time to hit those books, Mr. Walker) of or relating to a woman who has borne a single child or is pregnant for the first time.
Suckling – v. nursing at the breast or udder
Sentient – adj. Thinking, conscious.
Sporulate – v. To produce spores.
Chimerical – adj. Fanciful, unrealistic.
