Definition - a drinker
The English language has a seemingly innumerable number of synonyms for “drinker.” Few, if any, of these words also carry the meaning of “baby bottle.” So what suck-bottle lacks in euphony it makes up for with a certain awkward utility.
A jolly Suck-Bottle, who was unhappily decoyed into the wrangling State of matrimony, happen’d to be bless’d over the Left Shoulder, with the Devil of a Termagant, so that if he was not ready to step into his Marriage-Bed….he was sure to have his Ears firinged with such a Peal of Tongue Thunder, more terrible to his Lungs than the Crowing of a Cock to the trembling Lyon.
