Possibly when playing cards -- "I nak'd Jack!" in Strip Jack Naked  (sometimes
known as "Beggar Your Neighbour".


(for a new, clear world)


Yeah, maybe I was a bit hasty on the "usually".  There may be a general
distinction between attributive and predicative uses; "X is beloved by all" is
definitely bisyllabic for me.  Has this been discussed anywhere?


P.S.  Are there any speakers who rhyme "baked" and "naked"?
