Higgelvich Piggelvich Anna Karenina Russian romanticist cracked under strain:impetuosity caused her to tragically, melodramatically catch the next train. (from a magazine)and another:Normandy-Normandy William the Conqueror channeled his strength against Celtics and Picts.Domesday Book sponsor and founder of juries, he's mainly remembered for 1066. (also from a magazine - I'm guessing GAMES magazine, since it is from some notes I kept from a creative writing class I taught)

I tend to forget to come to wordnik; is it legal to steal your list and add it to mine? If so, how do I do this? If not, I apologize for feeling so drawn to thievery!
This is wonderful! Oh, how I love words and phrases! And I must admit that "antediluvian" was one of the first words with which I fell in love -- and this was before I knew its meaning. It was the way Donovan said it in the narrative beginning to the (now somewhat embarrassing) song "Atlantis."

ludology: My late husband and I (he died at 56) were game freaks. Now I have trouble finding people who want to play games, opting instead for computers, facebook, movies, and TV. So sad.

You've got some great words here: love papaveerine. Do you have "post-prandial"? While it doesn't fit in the "p" category, you might like preantepenultimate: it mens next to the next to the next to the last!

Since you have "nuzzle" on your list, perhaps you would enjoy "canoodle," which means to cuddle.

Great choices, Saudade108, but do consider adding PREANTEPENULTIMATE. Looking for reasons to use it can make for a fun moment or two.

I an a resistentialist! This philosophy has developed over time, and I suspect that, as more humans age, they, too, will come to embrace it!
(Obviously, these should all be adjectives if they DESCRIBE me, so I'll say that this list contains words that describe me, have to do with me, includes words for feelings I have and for things I do.)

Welcome claire1215. Enter your word in the "look up any word..." box, and hit return. The word will display, and then you have a choice to list the word by clicking the pink "list" button at the top right of the page. You will then be given an opportunity to create a list the word will be entered into, to name the list, and choose whether or not you care to have others add words to your list ("edit").
