Whilst studying from Dr. Tom Constable's awesome notes (http://www.soniclight.com/constable/notes.htm), I came across a new word ...

TheFreeDictionary.com (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/truckling) has to be servile or submissive

Merriam-Webster.com (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/truckling) has to act in a subservient manner.

However, I feel Thesaurus.com (http://thesaurus.reference.com/browse/truckling) is missing a few synonyms: Brown-Noser, Lick-spittle and Toady.

JMHO.

PS - Work this into three conversations today and you'll own it. Forever. Word!
