learning cottage
 n.— «Somehow, trailer (be it on a farm, or in a public school parking lot) just seems to lack esteemable associations. So now they’ve coined the term “learning cottage” to soften up the blow…at the same time I can’t help but to think “learning cell.”» —“A Little TinTin-Nabulation:Trailer Trainin’ (web hook-up)!” by Meredith Byrne B9_Learning (Atlanta, Ga.) Dec. 9, 2004.
