"Gumsuck me goodbye, honey!" Gumsuck is a 19th-century slang term for "kiss". Ewww....


To thine own ipseity be true. Ipseity is a word for "selfhood" or the ability to be oneself.


Any other epeolatrists out there? Epeolatry is the worship of words.


One of my favorite words is fulgent (meaning "shining brightly"). "Unable to sleep, he wandered the hills that night, under the fulgent moon." (TWITO, page 58)


Are you sesquipedalian? Then you like to use long words.
