By Noah Webster.
By William Dodge Lewis, Edgar Arthur Singer
The highest English court next to the parliament; in the United States a lower court of equity. Also a pugilistic term for the position of an opponent's head when it is under one's arm, so that it may be held and pommelled severely, the victim mean while being unable to retaliate effectively; hence, sometimes figuratively used of an awkward fix or predicament.
