Becalmed (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Becalmed

A piece of sea wit, sported in hot weather. I am becalmed, the sail sticks to the mast; that is, my shirt sticks to my back. His prad is becalmed; his horse knocked up.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
