Hmmmm, so that's what they do! Have you ever heard of the Bulwer-Lytton
contest ("It was a dark and stormy night....")?

I always they thought they "clamored" for attention, but "clammering,"
which sounds more like "hammering," is probably right. In New England, we
do have "clammers" who "clamber" around the rocks and mud, making a great
"clamor" with their implements as they dig the -uh-quahogs (and clams)! It
all depends on your perspective on Victorian novels and bivalve mollusks.


Celebrate technical writers by reading a good manual!
