Submitted by Ben Cairns "slunched" is a metaplastic word that juxtaposes the passive defeat and surrender of "slumped" against the more active bending or drawing up of "hunched". Proper usage: "Ben sat slunched over his desk, ready to apply himself to the test he knew he was sure to fail". (Originally posted October 1, 2003)
