cormac mccarthy’s compound words 4

Sutree:

p.10 proves to be the first without a single compound word, unusual or otherwise. But then there’s a break in the dialog and hope springs anew.

(p.11)
-gillslots
-hubcap
-riverwater

Well that hardly made up for anything.

(p.12)
-ragpicker
-illjoined
-paintchipped
-floorboards
-caulkingstring
-riverwater

(p.13)
-houseboat
-tirecasings
-bilgewater
-shantyboat
-breastbone
-weathershrunk
-carriagehouse
-rosegarden
-mossmold (“odor of boxwood and mossmold and old brick”)
-springhouse
-troutspeckled

I guess that will do.
