I was reading a BritPopMag the other day. Two different writers each used "insouciant." OK, unusual, but not THAT wierd.

But, then someone used "amaneunsis." What?

A trip to the OED, 'cause of a popmag? And no punch line, either!


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

Built in thesauruses are great to allow people to be more imaginative in their writing but it's usually pretty easy to spot the people who are just trying to appear above their true linguistic skills.

I opened this thread and thought you meant these


BTW, you spelled "weird" wrong. That needs to be on your pet peeve list of words. wink
