Dan337 commented on the word harpsical
Obsolete corruption of the word “harpsichord”— http://definition-of.com/harpsical
January 25, 2011
I know of only five bona fide English words that end with “-psical”: “autopsical”, “harpsical”, “dropsical”, and the dubious derived forms “nondropsical” and “undropsical”. There are at least 111 words that end with “-sical”.
