Hey, you zwodder—stop fudgeling about!
Fun stuff, Scott. In fact the list you started should be required reading for writers at The Simpsons. Lots of scenes where either Mr. Burns or Abe Simpson are spouting off in twattle that no one else on screen can follow.
OK, my fellow word nerds, a book. About words. I Always Look Up the Word Egregious: A vocabulary book for people who don't need one, by Maxwell Nurnberg. From it I give you veridical: speaking the truth; corresponding to reality. :-D
Scott--I love this list! I wonder if people used more of these words whether it would improve their click-throughs on headlines and social media shares. But if we fugel the day away who has time to participate in twattling on these platforms? Happy marketing, Heidi Cohen - Actionable Marketing Guide
As a zwodder with a persistent elfock issues, I am all in with this! The perfect meeting of subject and writer!
If you're looking for fascinating, unheard-of words, take a look at "The Liar's Dictionary". It's an incredible read. And the most ambitious use of language I've discovered since "Finnegan's Wake". (But at least this time, in "The Liar's Dictionary" all the words are real!
I agree with you Scott. I enjoy of words also. Please keep it up.
