Rare words - unplugged


#21

No neologisms, please!


#22

“erudite”


#23

And I swear, I never heard anyone use the word “bullish” until Knights started using it.


#24

Yes, I prefer to use ‘taurine ‘ as well.


#25

triumvirate - ala Warner, Smith & Bancroft


#26

Spiflicate


#27

My nominated word for today (and its first appearance on BB):

vexillology

Appropriate, considering we are all vexillophiles.


#28

My interest in that has started to flag.


#29

I anticipate you will reconsider when we fly a new pennent in September.


#30

It’ll be a new standard.


#31

XVII would be the new standard.


#32

Malapropism. One of my favourites since I caught G. Baum misusing it, but unfortunately that wasn’t a malapropism in and of itself.

Greg, if you’re reading, please man up and reply to my email.


#33

:blush: Cerulius


#34

Not in my dictionary. Meaning and where found?


#35

It’s Straight Outa Hogwarts!


#36

I thought it might be something like that.


#37

So U think I should choose a different word?
:frowning:


#38

You are free to run with my “cakamity” from the Locations thread.

I suspect it means the appearance of a really dirty nappy!


#39

You’ve changed the spelling but the word is still artificial. Cerulean is a word.


#40

Woo hoo ! ■■■■■■■ A! I was feeling so cerulean that it made me feel cerulius. :wink:
