Extrapolations from a dream, whose key word evaporated upon waking. Attempts to bring it back led nowhere, save the above. Not words, but might’ve been.
And not all of them (quite) nonsense —

on -ery, see entry in the Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia (1903), including this —
Originally abstract, denoting the collective qualities of the subject, it has also or only a concrete sense, as in finery, greenery, etc. ... denotes a business... hence it came to refer to wares, etc., collectively... and to the place where such wares are made or sold, or to any place of business... or to any place where the things represented by the subject are collected... especially to places where animals are collected, or to the animals collectively, as in hennery, goosery, rookery, piggery, hoggery.
