    I've just found my new word for the day (thank you Martin)- I shall use it to ameliorate my growing list of words I've never heard before!! (up to now only containing 'Forenoon' - it's a new list!!)

    Doesn't your list include "palliative" then?

    Does that mean if you hear a word for a second time that you have to remove it from your list because you have heard it before?

    That's a very good point! I am now in a state of discombobulation and frasmotically pondering your suggestion!!

    @BH - palliative (regrettably) I have heard before.

    Frasmotic-now that's an interesting word, see here.

    @ oijonesey, I'm starting to get worried about you!! :eek: Suggest palliative care?

    Thank you for your concern, for which I offer you my most enthusiastic contrafribularities - but I must concede that a) it's not the first time I've quoted them here and b) I owe them all to one of my avatars ancestors who used it first . Now then where did we put the topic of this thread? I'm sure it was here a few days ago but now it's just disappeared!! :oops:

    That'll do, BH :) I tried to convince myself I'd seen it before but Google hasn't so I can't fool myself ;)

    Can I suggest a new thread title "Oijonesey's Lexiconographical Muses" ?

    Can we not find a more obscure word than "muses"?

    How about 'cerebrations'.

    Ameliorated must surely top any postliminary words?

    Cogitations, apophthegms ?

    My expectorations of the entomological facility of this place have been razed.

    I've just been explaining to Mrs F the differences between prevarication and obfuscation, relative to my enthusiasm for Christmas shopping...

    Passer Domesticus! Made into dumplings then laddled with butter. Delicious.
