- in statutory language, “a hackney carriage drawn by one horse.” Abbreviated from the _French_ CABRIOLET; originally meaning “a light low chaise.” The wags of Paris playing upon the word (quasi _cabri_ au lait) used to call a superior turn-out of the kind a _cabri au crême_. Our abbreviation, which certainly smacks of slang, has been stamped with the authority of the Legislature, and has been honoured by universal custom.
- to stick together, to muck, or tumble up.—_Devonshire._
