Feeling on two words?
« on: October 27, 2014, 02:28:26 PM »
Trying to get thoughts about two words in a partial fill:

Elea - Home of the philosopher Zeno.
Peaky - Looking sick or under the weather.

Many examples of Elea showing up, even though I think that's an obscure real-life reference.
Only one example of "Peaky" in reference to a pointed roof, but I think that in terms of sickness it should be well-known.

Thanks,
-Adam

I'd avoid PEAKY. It doesn't seem to be in general use in the sense of sickly, it's contrived in the sense of having a peak. Peaky Blinders was a gang in England that they've recently made a TV show about. That's probably pretty obscure, too.

ELEA probably OK - many terms from classical literature, ancient history,  and mythology are fair game.
