  • yarb, in a comment on "pulchritudinous": "I couldn't deny any word the right to exist, assuming words have rights, but this is still a sickly, cloying titan arum of an adjective."

    I had to go look up what a titan arum is. Terrifying flower! Awesomely evocative term.

  • Good point -- I see the word much more often than I hear it. In fact, I think I've only ever heard it spoken out loud in the context of debates over its pronunciation! Is there a synonym for "quixotic" that's more popular in conversation, or do people just not want to talk about tilting at windmills?

  • Does this have the same meaning as bupkis? Is it a misspelling, or a pun?
