brism
 n.— «The club history, written on the occasion of London Hunt’s centennial in 1985, recounts…“After the mid-1920s, maneuvering around the new university buildings posed an additional hazard. It was easy to go out of bounds, to ricochet wildly off a tree, or find oneself on the ‘brism’ (a local term for ‘brink of a chasm’).”» —“One of Canada’s finest” by John Gordon Sportsnet.ca (London, Ontario) Aug. 7, 2006.
