Words of the Day

From the "word a day" mailing list I subscribe to come two fun, if hard to use, words:

accismus (ak-SIZ-muhs) noun

Feigning disinterest in something while actually desiring it.

godwottery (god-WOT-uhr-ee) noun

1. Gardening marked by an affected and elaborate style.

2. Affected use of archaic language.

Some might accuse this blog of godwottery, but I say fie on you.
