Home/Blog/Lunting Life/What Is Lunting?

To understand some of what we talk about around here, we’ve established our own lexicon, i.e. our own vocabulary for the blog. So, our first word for the lexicon is lunting.

Lunt

Here’s what Dictionary.com says:

noun
1. a match; the flame used to light a fire.
2. smoke or steam, esp. smoke from a tobacco pipe.

verb (used without object)
3. to emit smoke or steam.
4. to smoke a pipe.

verb (used with object)
5. to kindle (a fire).
6. to light (a pipe, torch, etc.).
7. to smoke (a pipe).

Having highlighted the particular definitions of significance to us, one can deduce that I smoke a pipe. That is, I smoke a tobacco pipe with pipe tobacco. I don’t smoke that other stuff.

If we were British (which I am not, unfortunately), to lunt would be to walk whilst smoking a pipe. Though not British, I have done that.

Well, there you have it. Basically, I will use the word lunting whenever I talk about smoking a pipe. I will lay out the history and tell some tales of my lunting lifestyle in future posts, but I really just wanted to set up the terminology here. And now you have a new word with which to impress all your friends. You’re welcome.
