  • "vapulequimortiphobia (from Latin vapulare, to beat, equus, horse, and mortuus, dead), the fear of listening to someone beat a dead horse." - Charles Harrington Elster, The Grandiloquent Gumshoe ("There's a Word for It," Pocket Books 1996)

  • If it is the fear of "listening" to that, shouldn't there be some form of the Latin word audire (to hear) in there?
