Subject: REED query
I was recently chided by a MS reader for using the word
MASQUEWRIGHT. It is not in OED, and John Simpson at
OED assures me that they have no references to the word
in their paper files. But I know that I did not make the word
up. So . . . who did? Does any REED-er know of any references
to the word in primary or secondary sources?
