Frobnitz, pl. Frobnitzem (frob'nitsm) n.:
An unspecified physical object, a widget. Also refers to
electronic black boxes. This rare form is usually abbreviated to
FROTZ, or more commonly to FROB. Also used are FROBNULE, FROBULE, and
FROBNODULE. Starting perhaps in 1979, FROBBOZ (fruh-bahz'), pl.
FROBBOTZIM, has also become very popular, largely due to its exposure
via the Adventure spin-off called Zork (Dungeon). These can also be
applied to non-physical objects, such as data structures.
