I stumbled on this crazily amazing link earlier today, and after wasting a few years on this site I just had to share it!
It's a collection of all the fabulously descriptive words that nobody uses.
It's actually a little depressing when you think about all those poor, forgotten words.
But you can spend a fun and very educational hour clicking around enjoying all the crazy words. My new favorite word is "quibblism," or maybe "operiment," or even "stiricide (the falling of icicles from a house)." I adopted all three.
Come on! Let's spread the words! Go and adopt and start utilizing those obscuriferous words!
(And come back and tell me which you adopted!)
