Fun with Words!

I love words. Here is a list of things we (or many of us) didn't realize there were words for. My favorites from the list:

5. Callipygian

having a shapely butt

6. Nibling

the gender-neutral term for nieces or nephews

11. Philtrum

the vertical groove on the median line of the upper lip

I already knew this one but I love it anyway:

19. Interrobang

a punctuation mark designed for use especially at the end of an exclamatory rhetorical question; usually written as ?!

26. Crapulence

sickness from eating or drinking too much

42. Gambrinous

being full of beer

43. Tatterdemalion

a person dressed in ragged clothing

50. Tittle

the dot over i or j
