Definition: The armpit.
From Old English’s oxta, influenced by Old High German ahsala and Latin’s axilla– all, in some way, meaning armpit.
Why this word?
Why wouldn’t you want another word to describe the humid crevice of flesh between your ribcage and your inner arm? I mean, seriously. Let’s be honest, here.
How would you use oxter in a sentence?
Example: “I just haven’t felt right since I had my twin removed from my left oxter. I know he was shortening my life, but he was my brother, you know?”
