  • 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.)
