> In Oz we have whatsits, whatchama'callits, whoozama'jigs, thingumy'jigs, thingummy'bobs - well, the list goes on and on. (The ' mark shows the start of the accentuated syllable, in case you are wondering. They aren't spelled that way.)

Now that's interesting because I (in southern England) would put the accent on the first syllable of each of those.

And I can add: "how's-yer-father" and "doofer" (the word that will do for the correct one).

And of course a happy New Year to all from me, especially to those who keep Mudcat running (most of the time).
