On another list it is asked:

     
I just received the following query from a friend: "I have an urgent eighteenth-century British slang question: what are some synonyms for the stile in a fence/wall?"

I am assuming the asker wants slang synonyms for "stile", not standard English synonyms for the slang term "stile", which "stile" is not.

Please send responses to me (or this loist), and I will passs them on.

Joel
