A Gobbet, derived from the Old French gober (to swallow) and etymologically related to gobble (to eat quickly), is a small chunk of meat, roughly the size of a mouthful. It is borrowed in modern use to indicate the concept of a small chunk, e.g.: gobbets of text, gobbets of information. In the study of history and classics, gobbet often refers to a brief analysis text of a larger work or body of source material. The Oxford English Dictionary contains no references to gobbets as literary fragments before 1913.
