GUEST,ClaireBear What are jubal hounds? (66* d) RE: What are jubal hounds? 28 Jan 05


Sometimes I know too much about language for my own good, but I always assumed the word was "jubile" (which would, I thought, be a regional cousin to "jubilant") and that it meant "baying" -- from the Latin iubilater, to shout joyously.

Mind you, I can't find any dictionary that backs me up on this...it's just something that kind of makes sense from an etymological perspective.
