whelm (verb)

past tense: whelmed; past participle: whelmed

  1. engulf, submerge, or bury (someone or something).”a swimmer whelmed in a raging storm”
    • flow or heap up abundantly.”the brook whelmed up from its source”

I’ve been trying to come up with a sentence for just plain old whelm. Maybe, “I was going to whelm them with my talent, but changed my mind at the last minute.“

Or, “He had to whelm everyone with his charm.”

It’s just weird, right? And then to think one can be overwhelmed, even underwhelmed. Personally, I’m over whelm. Just over it.

Peace, people.

  1. I have thought this thought before too. Whelm has no place in our vocabulary, I feel sorry for whelm. It always has to be accompanied by a word to describe it – it cannot describe itself. Is that a disability, if it is a word? To not have the ability to describe itself strongly enough to be used adequately in a sentence?
