What's the best random word you've ever come across?
« on: September 13, 2017, 03:32:03 AM »
I was looking for amusing word puns and came across the word "Flummadiddle".  Yes, it's a real word.  It means something foolish or worthless (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).  I need to find places to use it now.

What other absolutely fabulous words are hiding out there that you've come across?

Ooh, I love words, the more random the better!
My all-time favourite is floccinaucinihilipilification, meaning a disregard for or a belief that something is worthless. It could be said I have a floccinaucinihilipilification of flummadiddle.
Other favourites include agroof, magniloquence, ultracrepidarian, kafuffle, insapphirine, defenestration, fantod and flabbergasted. A lot of fun can be had trying to get them into conversation.

Okay, flummadiddle might just be my new favourite word! :D
'Sesquipedalianism' has been one of my go-to weird words for the past few years, which is using excessively long words when a shorter or more commonplace word would do the job just fine. It probably appeals to me because I am guilty of being incredibly sesquipedalian myself. XD

I've always been fond of the Norwegian word 'angstskrik', for having 7 consonants in a row. As for English words, I'm a big fan of kerfuffle myself.

Oh my Gods that is the cutest name for a baby animal EVER!!! I had no idea they were called that. I assumed they were called chicks.

I also really like the word "nibling".  It refers to nieces and nephews just like sibling refers to brothers and sisters.  I love that I can claim to have 13 niblings.  :)

Lugubrious-It means depressed and cynical. A glass is completely empty person. But it kinda sounds like something you'd do to help maintain your car.

Yesteryear-Its so old timey and nice sounding.

Odious-Sadly nothing to do with smells. It means an obnoxious or repugnant person/situation.

Gessunteit- I prefer to say this instead of bless you, because its such a weird word.

predilection-a strong bias in favor of something.
