I recently joined Library Thing ( http://www.librarything.com/home/Peanuts1958 ); dangerous, I tell you! Not only are there endless numbers of books and people who like words, there are games to be played! I joined one group where the challenge was to find 5 not well known words of an insulting nature. I wrote this little ditty from my search.
The beldam (n. - a repulsive older woman) had quite a borborygmite (n. - a dirty mouth, or practitioner of spurcitious--foul and obscene—language) and was given to pathomimesis (n. – malingering) which explains why she was a pentapopemptic (n. - divorced five times. ) It caused great pentheraphobia
(n. - fear or dislike of one's mother-in-law) in her daughter’s husband.
To be fair, I should write one for the male gender, but that was enough for one day. There were so many amazing words on http://www.kokogiak.com/logolepsy/ow_l.html .
A couple highlights:
adj. - given to gross excess in drinking or eating; debauched intemperance
n. - fossilized feces. coprolith, n. hard mass of fecal matter. coprolitic, adj.
n. - vigesimation
n. - killing every twentieth person
(now, I ask you, why is that word even necessary? Is this a biblical thing?
