Oh, you *would* pick words based on obscurity of meaning. Words have other aesthetics too, you know.

Kenan Hebert (kenan), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 03:03 (nineteen years ago) link

I have chosen these words partly for their preciosity but most importantly for their meaning. They are part of a lexical field of a hedonist materialism theory that I'm working on.

The entire American Hippie "Language" consists of the following ten words, with variations on pronunciation for versatility of use:

1. dude, 2. man, 3. woah, 4. fuck, 5. alright, 6. cool, 7. far, 8. out, 9. what?, 10. totally

nickalicious (nickalicious), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:06 (nineteen years ago) link

It should be pointed out that the 't' in 'what?' is silent.

That one post where some guy just rips off George Carlin and adds three useless terms, though, that’s just pathetic.

Crepuscular is a good one. my family is a crepuscular gestalt, because one of us is a cat, and one of us is me.

Abattoir. Cool word terrible meaning.

Another meeting the same criteria: Surimi

Oubliette is better than Abattoir.

Word I just learned, and love: amanuensis (n. a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another; secretary)

Any word that Stephin Merritt could use as the title for a 6ths album is good.

"Phthalates"

Hideous Lump, Friday, 25 November 2022 08:19 (one week ago) link

xp re: amanuensis

funnily enough, a common word in Dutch in a secondary school context (at least in my days):

In the Netherlands it refers to a (technically schooled) physics, chemistry or biology laboratory assistant responsible for preparing and assisting with or conducting laboratory demonstrations and maintaining the instruments. When employed as such in a school environment s/he will have the title of "TOA" ("technisch-onderwijsassistent", i.e. Technical Teaching Assistant).
