  • I'm trying to find some theoretical justification for claiming that fear of the Parthenon would be morphologically more complex - such as Parthenonophobia. Is the final -on the genitive plural? Perhaps if I was less drunk I could look it up and think about it.

  • The fear of virgins -- though it could easily be mistaken for a fear of the Parthenon; the Parthenon's a scary temple, probably ghosts lurking around those pillars.
