This isn't properly a game, but I wasn't sure where to post it. Since it isn't only about Latin, but at the same time is bound to involve some Latin, neither "General Latin Chat" nor "Other Languages" nor "Non-Latin Talk" felt entirely appropriate. So, heck, I post it here; even if it doesn't properly belong here either, it's still something fun although it isn't really a game. This thread is for posting "Interesting Words" in the broadest possible sense of the term — that is, words you find interesting because curious, funny, nice, beautiful, or (why not) ugly; words that you like or words that strike you for any reason whatsoever, and in any language whatsoever. You can even post words of your own invention. Let me start by giving a few of my favourites: In Latin, Plautus coined many wonderful words, like lubifragium, stultividus, dentilegus, urbicapus, stultiloquium. Apuleius has a few nice ones too, like dependulus, antependulus, retropendulus. One English word I like is the verb "to throne-sit" which I discovered in something posted by Hawkwood once. One amazing Old English word is selfæta, literally "self-eater", meaning a cannibal. There are many others that I like, but that'll be enough for now. As may be apparent from the preceding, I have a particular liking for compound words.
