Today’s word on the HSMSHS page on Facebook is lean: 1) be in or move into a sloping position. 2) (lean against/on) incline from the perpendicular and rest against. 3) (lean on) rely on for support. 4) (lean to/towards) incline or be partial to (a view or position). 5) (lean on) informal intimidate into doing something.
DS’s books fit the bill.
