Word of the weekend

My lovely wife can purse her lips and make a bizarre whistling noise like a balloon losing air. It occasionally annoys me, when she does this for long lengths of time.

Now thanks to my obsolete-word-a-day calendar, I have a word to describe it: SQUACKETT, defined as any disagreeable noise made with the mouth.

"Stop that squackett, you're making a racket!"
