From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

fabiform, a.
[f. L. faba bean + (i)form: see -form.]


What can be deduced from my username?

  1. I have a copy of the complete OED
  2. I am bean-shaped


Now that we have the personal details out of the way...



  • wikipedia, knowledge, researching, trivia, obsession
  • the OED
  • the use of they as a gender-neutral third-person singular pronoun
  • the word wamble
  • singing along to the radio when I'm on my own


  • anyone who leaves the Summary: field blank, especially sysops
  • edit conflicts
