Definition: to keep back as if by swallowing
Ethanology: Middle English, from a Middle Dutch or Middle Low German word akin to Dutch & Frisian gulpen to bubble forth, drink deep; akin to Old English gielpan to boast
( No picture can be found for this word.)

I gulped when i saw the formidable array of weapons on the shelf.
