I just stumbled across something with the word "dishevel". For no reason I know, I began wondering if the word was somehow related to the phrase "She-devil". Also if this is such a word as "hevel", for how can one dishevel if one wasn't hevelled to begin with?
Reminds me of the old "Why is there no such thing as a gruntled employee?" The English language is full of little oddities like that.
