In The Elephant's Child by Rudyard Kipling he writes
But there was one Elephant–a new Elephant–an Elephant's Child–who
was full of 'satiable curtiosity, and that means he asked ever so many
and then later
'Have I seen a Crocodile?' said the Bi-Coloured-Python-Rock-Snake, in
a voice of dretful scorn. 'What will you ask me next?'
Are these simply made up words never to be seen again or is there some way of interpreting them?
