“Crenellation” just happens to be one of my favorite words, right up there with “tintinabulation.” Being one of those individuals for whom the fifty-cent word is always the obvious choice, even when there are several perfectly adequate ten-cent words ready to get the point across, I’ve always made a habit of collecting words, just for fun (“Oh, how sad,” you’re thinking. “This is her idea of fun?”).
So, back to crenellation. It evokes images of elaborate layered Victorian skirts, equally elaborate Victorian hairstyles, and even – potentially – elaborate lacy Victorian undergarments.

None of which have any particular bearing on this post, but still. I’m just sayin’.

Sometimes, crenellation occurs where you least expect it.
