Subject: Two Gents, Catching Cold
In Two Gents, Act I, scene 2, line 136, Lucetta says, speaking about the
paper scraps that Julia leaves lying on the ground, "Yet here they shall
not lie, for catching cold." What the heck does this mean?? I looked
it up in a lexicon dictionary but couldn't find an entry for this
particular instance of the word "cold."
A related question...I know I need to get an OED (shame on me for not
having one already), but what is the best resource for place and name
And in the meantime, how do you all pronounce Lucetta?? loo-set'-tuh
or loo-chet'tuh or some other??
Thanks in advance,
