Works for humans, too.




OK, so it's a verb not a noun. And French not English. But still works! Whistle

I wonder if it is mispronounced very often.

You're allowed to use the Free Dictionary, James.
Here, I've copied it for you this time.

swad·dle  (swŏd′l)
tr.v. swad·dled, swad·dling, swad·dles
1. To wrap, as in cloth: He stood on the sidewalk, swaddled in a blanket.
2. To wrap (a baby) in swaddling clothes.
3. To wrap or bind in bandages; swathe.
n.
A band or cloth used for swaddling.

[Middle English swadlen, probably back-formation from swadling (band), swaddling (cloth), or swathelbonde, both from *swathelen, probably frequentative of Old English swathian, to swathe.]
