  • Then perhaps I should remove it. :-) Thanks, slumry!

    July 23, 2007

  • Thank you! :-)

  • misanthrope too strong? Then there are the lovely anchorite and eremite.

    March 31, 2007

  • Not a back formation, but today I read an ad looking for "impactive" photographs.

    Gaaaaargh.

  • On this list because I always think it has the connotation of insidiousness, which it doesn't really.

  • What about arak? They drink it in the Middle East -- it's a grape-based alcohol flavored with aniseed and mixed with water before sipping.

    I think it's pretty foul, myself. :-)

  • I can't believe I forgot this word for my Blanguage list. :-)

    February 27, 2007

  • Hmmm. Pause? It doesn't work in your sentence, but it does work with "Instead of saying what he meant, uselessness (BLANKED) meaningfully."

    February 22, 2007

  • Devilry (or deviltry, which I prefer)? Prank?

    February 21, 2007

  • Blaspheme is perfect. Thank you!

    February 21, 2007

  • Blurb is great. I considered blistering and blow, but I think I want to stick to words with an obvious and major relationship to language.

    February 21, 2007

  • You just made my entire day. :-)

    February 20, 2007

  • In my opinion, a delicious word to say.

    February 20, 2007

  • Surely ur!

    February 20, 2007

  • Ooh. Awesome list. There's cow and worm.

    February 20, 2007

  • Yokel? Galoot?

    February 20, 2007

  • I lifted snare, gimmick, feint, and hustle!

    February 20, 2007

  • I'm always mistakenly thinking it refers to a large machine, like a tractor. Lovely word, though.

    February 20, 2007

  • Ooh -- thanks for dodge! I think I need to be convinced about wheeze..

    February 20, 2007

  • Lovely! Thank you!

    February 20, 2007

  • I just remembered that Hebrew has words for "the day before yesterday," "the day after tomorrow," and "yesternight." I'm not sure if any of them have adjectival forms, though.

  • I love that gauche and ganache are next to each other on your list. They're a lovely pair. And now I'm doing my best to imagine "a gauche ganache."

    February 17, 2007

  • Well, it might be a candidate for someone else's list of the same name...

    :-)

    February 17, 2007

  • What about boor and goon?

    February 16, 2007

  • I think of it the same way you do.

    February 16, 2007

  • For some reason, even though this word contains its meaning, I always find myself thinking it means either its opposite -- something that will not abate -- or else that it means "a lack of".

    February 16, 2007

  • reestee, that's funny -- nonplussed sounds exactly like its meaning to me. ;-)

    sionnach, enervating is definitely an odd one. It helps me that I kind of sigh when I say it.

    I'm adding some of these to the list!

    February 16, 2007

  • ...I always think it means "stubborn." Not only that, but I think it _should_ mean "stubborn."

    February 15, 2007

  • None of the standard links will find anything on this word, but there's a citation here and another here.
