  • Fecaloid may be my new favorite word.

  • You're not wrong, rolig; I do like the sound of turd. But what I'm really after is a word that expresses the particular shape of one. What was the latin (or other classical language) for the stool, as distinct from the substance?

    *eyes flock of turd-birds nervously*

  • Anyway, how do you think the poor birds feel?

    *readies the flock*

  • Of course you do, Yarb. But turdiform has been taken, and I'm sure you don't want Reesetee to send a flock of thrushes your way. Just ask Tippi Hedren what that's like. You might try fecaloid, coprolithic, or stercoraceous. But I suspect you just like the sound of turd. Am I right?

  • But rolig, I want a fancy neologism with a latin root!

    (Thanks for the love, c_b).

  • My nomination stands.

  • Try turd-shaped or turdlike, yarb. Turdiform is for the birds!

    May 21, 2009

  • If this doesn't actually mean "turd-shaped", then what does?

    May 21, 2009

  • I laughed too.

    May 18, 2009

  • Not very many words in isolation make me laugh, but this one does. I don't know if it's the initial mental image it conjures up or its potential as an insult. Maybe it's just because it has turd in it.

  • Though, you gotta admit, at first glance...

  • Which would also explain the "avian" tag.

    October 15, 2008

  • No. You can click on any of the dictionary links above. It has to do with thrushes--the bird.

  • Poop-shaped?
