Panacea...

Exsanguination...

Defenestration... (EDIT: Someone said this as I was typing my response D:)

Verisimilitude...

Ethereal...

Some of my favorite random words!

Never words I'd use in an every-day conversation, though. I like learning new ones, but as an engineer... anyone who uses unnecessary vocabulary like that in their reports will never make it as an engineer.

Smegma
Fistula
Sphincter
Putrescine
Cadaverine

I do like words but I rarely use big ones in speech.

Some favorites: Morbid, swindle, spectral, supernatural, talisman, shrine, cairn, ghostly, wraith, bewitching, transmigration

I like words that have unusual meanings but that also sound nice without being dramatic and clunky.

I only about this word because the Popes used to drink the Consecrated Wine from a special straw called the "fistula".


Catholics have interesting words

No, I don't. I don't have interest in literature.
Yes, I find it insulting, because you don't need fancy words to communicate with people, save it for essays.

Huh... am I the only one imagining Sogno- flying into a homicidal rage during the film Mary Poppins? Perhaps even defenestrating her television, since that appears to be the word du jour.

Panacea is one I learned from the game Dragons Dogma.

Exsanguination I had to look up.

Defenestration is a good word too.

Verisimilitude is one I have heard but never learned. Good word too.

Ethereal... 2spooky4me.

Fistula is also a medical term used to describe a surgically created zone on the arm where you can insert the tubes required for dialysis in the event of kidney failure.

Source: My mom had one when she was on dialysis. (Also, I used the word "had" because she got a kidney transplant and they were able to remove the fistula. She's fine!)

Oooh, so it's not just surgically created but can happen abnormally in other scenarios o:

The fistula in the arm I think is where an artery and vein are connected, but those others sound so much worse...

Fascinating. I never would have known! Thanks xD
