mammet — “A whining,” ROMEO AND JULIET, iii. 5. 185 ; “To play with mammets,” 1 HENRY IV., ii. 3. 89. That in the first of these passages mammet means “puppet” (used as a term of reproach) is certain; but in the second passage mammets perhaps means (as Gifford first suggested)“breasts” (from mamma).
