n.— «The long build-up to Annapolis, together with Rice’s many trips to the region, have given birth to a new verb in Israeli government circles: “lecondel,” based on Rice’s first name. People say that they don’t have time to “lecondel”—meaning, to come and go for meetings that produce few results.» —“Outlook gets murkier for Mideast talks” by Steven Erlanger in Jerusalem International Herald Tribune (Paris, France) Nov. 11, 2007.
