-A dolphin; a porpoise.
From Middle English mereswin (“porpoise, dolphin”), from Old English mereswīn (“porpoise, dolphin”), from Proto-Germanic *mariswīną (“dolphin, porpoise, cetacean”) from Proto-Germanic *mari (“sea”) + Proto-Germanic *swīną (“swine, pig”), equivalent to mer- + swine.
So, in short, it means “Sea Pig”.
Used in a sentence:
“The obscure legend of the camelopard and the mereswine is the most tragic love story I’ve ever heard outside of the Jerry Springer Show.”
Is this story "Fake News" or something that actually happened in Florida.
