  1. Marilyn

    A Marilyn is a mountain or hill in the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland or Isle of Man with a relative height of at least 150 metres, regardless of absolute height or other merit. The name was coined as a punning contrast to the designation Munro, used of a Scottish mountain with a height of more than 3,000 feet, which is homophonous with Monroe. There are 2,009 Marilyns identified: 1,216 in Scotland, 455 in Ireland, 176 in England, 157 in Wales, 5 on the Isle of Man. Black Mountain, in the Black Mountains, on the border between England and Wales, was formerly counted in both countries but is now treated as being in Wales only. The list of Marilyns in Britain was compiled by Alan Dawson in his book The Relative Hills of Britain, and continues to change as resurveying produces revised heights for hills and the passes between them. The list was extended into Ireland by Clem Clements in a booklet, The Hewitts and Marilyns of Ireland. Although many of the islands' largest hills including Ben Nevis, Carrantuohill, Scafell Pike and Snowdon are Marilyns, many other large hills such as Cairngorm, a number of Munros, and other well-known hills such as Bowfell, the Langdale Pikes and Carnedd Dafydd, are not Marilyns because they do not have sufficient relative height. However, some lower hills such as Seatallan and Watch Hill on the edges of Lakeland and the Long Mynd in Shropshire do qualify because of their isolation from higher hills. Not all of the Marilyns are even hills in the usual sense: one, the highest point of the Weald, lies within the East Sussex town of Crowborough, whilst the top of the Yorkshire Wolds, Bishop Wilton Wold lies alongside the A166 road. At the other extreme are Stac Lee and Stac an Armin, the two highest sea stacks in the British Isles, in the St Kilda archipelago, over 81 miles west of the Scottish mainland.

Examples of Marilyn in a Sentence

  1. Herbert DeLaigle:

    Frances worked at a little cafe Marilyn DeLaigle had in Waynesboro named White Way Cafe, i kept seeing her going in and out, in and out and I had my eyes set on her. And then I finally got up the nerve to ask her if she would go out with me sometime.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Fait intéressant, il est l'imperfection qui fait de belles choses, même si ce point de vue peut sembler labyrinthique. La perfection absolue est souvent inaccessible en réalité, et pourtant tant de choses imparfaites peut être à couper le souffle. il doit donc être nos imperfections qui nous rendent si unique - et donc plus belle à mon humble avis. I aime ce que Marilyn Monroe a dit il ya des décennies: "Imperfection est la beauté, la folie est le génie, et il vaut mieux être absolument ridicule absolument ennuyeux." Donc, aller de l'avant et de célébrer votre differentness - y compris vos imperfections qui vous rendent belle.

  3. Daniel Wade:

    It's the night that two great worlds collided in JFK and Marilyn Monroe. And of course, sadly they would both die within almost a year of that night. So it's also somewhat tragic as well as being hugely notable.

  4. Martin Nolan:

    That's a really neat piece and it's like a time warp right back to the 1940s when Marilyn was just becoming famous.

  5. Tiffanie Pierce:

    Especially someone so young and beautiful and with as much potential as Marilyn, there is not a day that goes by that I dont wish I could trade places with her.
