- a deaf-and-dumb person; a clumsy, awkward fellow; any one unusually thick-witted.
- in three-handed whist the person who holds two hands plays DUMMY.
- a pocket-book. In this word the derivation is obvious, being connected with DUMB, _i.e._, that which makes no sound. As a thieves’ term for a pocket-book, it is peculiarly applicable, for the contents of pocket-books, bank-notes and papers, make no noise, while the money in a purse may betray its presence by chinking.
