My Word of the Day
To PUCKER (PU’CKER) v.a.[from puck the fairy; as elflocks, from elves; or from powk, a pocket or hollow.]To gather into corrugations; to contract into folds or plications.
I saw an hideous spectre; his eyes were sunk into his head, his face pale and withered, and his skin puckered up in wrinkles. Spectator, No. 192.
A ligature above the part wounded is pernicious, as it puckers up the intestines, and disorders its situation. Sharp.
