LUNCH. n.s.

LUNCH. LU'NCHEON. n.s.

LUNCH. LU’NCHEON. n.s. [Minshaw derives it from louja, Spanish;
Skinner from kleinken, a small piece, Teu-
tonick.  It probably comes from clutch or clunch.] As much
food as one’s hands can hold.
When hungry thou stood’st staring, like an oaf,
I slic’d the luncheon from the barley loaf;
With crumbled bread I thicken’d well the mess. Gay.
