  • My two favorite hell words: stygian and lethe.

    From Nabokov's Pale Fire: "We all know those dreams in which something Stygian soaks through and Lethe leaks in the dreary terms of defective plumbing."

  • Hmm... that's similar to the dog's bollocks.

  • Wow, thanks for all the suggestions! I was aiming for "saucy" gallicisms. I think a few of these suggestions would work well in my "Sexy and Saucy" list too.

  • Both suggestions are fabulous. I shall add them!

  • That's funny. I'm trying to avoid words that are too obvious, but perhaps a neologism like "licksome" incorporates the same idea. In the spirit of toothsome and winsome!

  • Hey!! I see that somebody has taken a jab at me for sitting quietly. I just found the site this past weekend, so it should be permissible for me to lurk for a little while. Besides, nobody has made any comments on my words. Although someone did correct my misspelling of "absit invidia" - thanks. I was sort of hoping someone would make some suggestions for my word lists. Anyway, hello!
