    In search of the right word

    Discussion in 'Research' started by doggiedude, Jun 11, 2016.

    Okay, creative people. I need another word for huddle. The thesaurus is lacking in decent choices for the situation.
    It's referring to two people huddling together & I've already used that word in the previous paragraph.

    if friends/acquaintances – close, nestled, bunched nested, crammed

    We once crammed three people into a phonebooth. It was cozy.

    But if you don't remember phonebooths, that may not mean much to you. ;)
