    RNDr

    I am reading a book Jeeves and the Wedding Bells and I do not understand the sentence, where Bertee describes a young lady saying:
    "(She) is also a jolly sight rummer. No amount of theory can ever prepare one for the true extent of that rumminess"

    Can you help me? Thanks Jan

    I would like to know what a "Doctor of the things of nature" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RNDr) has to do with your question.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Welcome to the forums, janklima.

    Please note that a better title would have been A jolly sight rummer.
