Troth Pledging

Classic Word of the Daytruckle – v.  to submit or be subservient to

Classical Usage:  The American, Henrietta, wants to know what the Americans think of their largely absent fellow-American, Ralph in Chapter X.  “They delight in me.” he tells her.  And she responds, “That’s because you truckle to them.”

Classically Mad Usage:  If my husband and I ever renew our vows you can count on hearing this line from my smiling lips, “to love, cherish, honor and truckle, till death us do part.”
