Marcel,

Let's see: Darth Vader was "unhelmeted", was he not?. And then we got to see that he is just a "worm". It gives me the heebie-jeebies, remembering it.

That's the most beautiful combination of words I read in a decade, and I learned a new word "lexicon" so thanks

Glad to share a phrase, and a word. Yes, English has a lot of possibilities available, thanks to "its" borrowing (read, "stealing... ") from other languages. ;) (Spanish has done this too, borrowing mostly from the Moors. Can see: HOW SPANISH GREW, by R.K. Spaulding [1962] ).
