In my previous post, I should probably have mentioned that ‘suillivore’ is four syllables, pronounced roughly ‘soo-ILL-i-voar’. If it were three syllables, it would be ‘swillivores’, which would be a good description of pigs, not eaters of pigs.

  1. “suilla”? Makes one wonder if the traditional hog call, “soo-eee!” actally originated with somebody who was educated in Latin…

  2. That’s okay, I keep reading it as “Sullivore” (ala a certain famously excitable pundit), and that just disturbs me.
