Annotations[edit]

014.05 dugs       the mamma or the nipple of a female mammal.[1]

014.08 cuckquean       a woman who has an unfaithful husband.[2] As a woman whose husband is dead is a widow, so a woman whose husband is a cuckold is a cuckquean.

014.18 Are you a medical student, sir?       The milkwoman asks Mulligan if he is a medical student. He answers in the affirmative, claiming medical knowledge. Joyce has undermined this knowledge as recently as 006.24, when Mulligan incorrectly identifies the definition of GPI.
