Merci, Larousse

In my spare time, I've been browsing my "All French Verbs" book. Here's some gems.

klaxonner- to sound one's horn (literally or figuratively?)
apponter- to land on deck
inféoder- to indenture (what?)
larder- to lard (in what sense?)
rempoissonner- to restock with fish (rrrright)
yodler- to yodel (I will use this verb. My host brother confused yodeling with bagpipes- cornemuse en français. Our task for tomorrow is finding Sound of Music online.)
vulcaniser- to vulcanize (as in star trek?)
zyeuter- to stare at (fun to say if nothing else.)
