I have Googled this word and can find no match for it anywhere in ANY dictionary, English or otherwise.

In short, this word does not exist in normal speech. I will concede, though, that it may exist as a slang or dialect word, but I have my doubts.




Here is a word that IS an archaic term:

swoopstake: indiscriminately or in an indiscriminate manner

I still can find no reference - and I have consulted OED online, and all the other major dictionary sites as well as several lexicography sites. Not one of them have this odd word listed.

Oh well, there's obscure and there's obscure I suppose...

Your gamidolatry DOES exist: it means 'worship of marriage' apparently...
