      the worthless word for the day is: lunt

      [fr. Dutch lont, a match]
      chiefly Scot., archaic(?)
      1) to smoke tobacco in (a pipe)
      2) to set fire to : light up : kindle
      hence, lunting
      (not to be confused with lant)

      "He sat ever by the chimney corner and
      lunted away on his cutty pipe."
      - S. R. Crockett, The Raiders (1894)
