  • Ancient Greek Version:
    I think that it can be Caryoterattanacarpo


    καρυότεροv , not sure but I think that it is the right comparative form (nuttier) of τό κάρυον: nut. A version more obfuscated maybe karyótatos, nut superlative.


    Transliteration: "karyóteron" from "káryon"


    ἃττανα καρποῦ: fruitcake (καρποῦ: Genitive)


    attana karpou

  • I'm developing a preference for hyperpitacarponucleic, possibly because -nucleic reminds me of nuclear which will always and forever summon up a most charming memory of our nutball ex-president.

  • Wow.

    March 15, 2010

  • I would like a polysyllabic word with obfuscated Greek etymology for "nuttier than a fruitcake", please.

    hyperpitacarponucleic, or possibly hypercarpopitamanic, or, taking the less appetizing Roman road, superfructoplacentophilic

  • Because this word is cryptoscopophilia (+p)
    Ancient Greek: κρύπτω, to hidden; σκοπέω, to watch; φιλέω, to love

  • See also catapiptocorophilia (arousal for women wearing parachutes).

  • Dr. Jacob Edward Schmidt died June 4 2000. He defined the word in his book.

    March 14, 2010

  • Look at that. Googled Cyclopedic Lexicon of Sex and it led me back to the Wordnik comments for crytoscopophilia. The world really is round.

    March 14, 2010

  • Googled amomaxia: apparently, J. E. Schmidt (1967) is the source, from Lecher's Lexicon or Cyclopedic Lexicon of Sex.

  • Alternatively, it could be abbreviation for "ammunition"

    March 14, 2010

  • Latin amor, amoris: "love" and maxime: "much, as possible". I think that It is wrong, because the word would be: amorimaxia. Also It doesn't sound me like hybrid word.

    March 14, 2010

  • If the definition below is accurate, I would extremely doubt anything but Latin 'amor' "love" for the amo- part..."maxia" prob. from some English source?

    March 14, 2010

  • Well spotted for the amo part; but I'm not sure about μάχη, because it would be amomachia (χ → ch).

    March 14, 2010

  • Ancient Greek Language; ἀμό or the word ἀμοῦ (adverbs) means "somewhere" and μάχη: fight, infighting, effort

    March 14, 2010

  • No idea, but some web sources say that the name Amos means "carried" (in Hebrew); the word μίξις (mixis) is used in biology for "mating", so perhaps who invented it had in mind something like "amomixia".

    March 14, 2010

  • Does anyone know what the etymology of this term is?

    March 14, 2010

  • Sex in a parked car.
