Fighting and Combat

Have you ever seen one of those old westerns when some grizzled and toothless saloon patron says "them's fighting words"? Well, here they are - all twenty-one of them! These words, all very obscure, refer to fighting, combat or conflict, whether actual or metaphorical, using the suffix "machy" (from the Greek mache, a fight).
