I have a question about the usage of this word. I know it means 'beak', but I see it's not mentioned here. Is it because the word is much less used than 'beak' and 'bill'? Or maybe it's more of literary use? Perhaps ironically, the word 'nibble' that derived from 'nib' is present in the article.
So, to make sure: the word is still used, no less then the other two?
Thank you, that settles it I think. One more question, what are you more likely to say: a beak or a bill?
