Well, thanks though for you tonight my popular use of soporific about my fire over turkey may be more apropos.


Oh, I loved that one as well!!!! I think I didn't comment on it because I was, well, rather sleepy myself during the read back. :lau

 

I have a lovely collection of essays by Anne Fadiman called Ex Libris, which I adore The essay "The Joy of Sesquipedalians" is about a quiz made of the 22 words she (as someone with a very good vocabulary) did NOT know in a book she was reading (The Tiger in the House by Carl Van Vechten, written in the 1920s). Her brother knew 9, her father knew 12.  

 

How many do you guys know (WITHOUT looking them up)?

 

monophysite

mephitis

calineries

diapason

grimoire

adapertile

retromingent

perllan

cupellation

adytum

sepoy

subadar

paludal

apozemical

camorra

ithyphallic

alcade

aspergill

agathodemon

kakodemon

goetic

opopanax

 

(I only knew three when I read this.)

(edit: OMG, BYC autocorrected her last name to "Radioman"!)

We won't mention how many I'd never even seen :hide

@Fire Ant Farm

Well, of the three I knew, two were just because I'm a microbiologist and one because I like to read fantasy books. :D
