"Tump" and "Eye" on the stove
i taught john these two words.
"eye" meaning the eye on the stove.
Chiefly Southern U.S. tumped , tump·ing , tumps
To overturn. Often used with over: You're about to tump that thing over.
Probably akin to tumble
My example: "I just got back from a canoe trip down the Spring River and my canoe didn't even tump over once."
6. Something suggestive of the vertebrate organ of vision, especially:
a. An opening in a needle.
b. The aperture of a camera.
c. A loop, as of metal, rope, or thread.
d. A circular marking on a peacock's feather.
e. Chiefly Southern U.S. The round flat cover over the hole on the top of a wood-burning stove. Also called regionally cap1, griddle.
