Are you sure it is an English word? I couldn’t find it here.

I think I am going to have to split this thread; however interesting new words are, they don’t help the original poster.

Maybe it's an American English word. The first link Google gave me was to Webster's

No, the Oxford dictionaries link Campbell gave does have it, and lists it as French-English.
