Vest-Pocket Vocabulary

Domicil’iate, v. to fix a place of residence.

Word in the Wild: Well, I got the job, packed up all my stuff, arranged for the moving van, and now I’ve just got to domicliliate myself in my new neighbourhood.

Here fix means something like install in. So if you’re domiciliating someone you’re getting them settled into their new place, not calling up Bob Vila.
