    Default How many words are there for puke? P. 2: Going international.

    The noun or verb will do.

    This thread is in honor of my daddy who prided himself on knowing many words for jail. I think I have posted about that before. Feel free to add synonyms for jail if you wish.

    There's no such thing as a vocabulary too large.
