v.— «Q: You used some interesting phrases and words in the story—”yawning hulk,” which I think is just a beautifully descriptive phrase, and you invented the word “gorked,” as in “gorked out on pills.” What led you to use that word specifically, and what types of discussions did you have on word choice? Hull: Doctors use that, they say “snowed’ or “gorked.”» —“Uncovering Misery at Walter Reed” by Lori Robertson American Journalism Review Apr.-May, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
